Data Type(s): Gene Expression

Experiment Type(s): Methylation profiling by genome tiling array

Organism(s): Homo sapiens

Summary: The biological mechanism of cadmium's effects is poorly characterized. This data was generated in order to help better understand the epigenetic role that Cadmium plays. We used the MIRA assay and the Affymetrix Human Promoter 1.0R Array in order to measure methylation levels in promoter regions.
