DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Epigenetic mechanisms regulate gene expression potential and alterations in epigenetic marks, such as DNA methylation and histone modifications, have been associated with a variety of diseases. Tissue samples (both research and clinical) are often preserved by formalin fixation and paraffin embedment (FFPE), which allows for long term storage in minimally controlled environments. However there can be significant variability in the preparation of FFPE samples and the preservation conditions are harsh, making FFPE samples challenging for sophisticated downstream analyses. Clinical FFPE samples are often accompanied by valuable information including, histology, treatment course and patient outcome, thus they are an incredibly valuable source for linking basic and clinical research. The goal of this Phase I proposal is to provide the feasibility studies to use or newly developed transposase associate chromatin immunoprecipitation (TA-ChIP) to localize DNA methylation and
