Study Description

The epigenomic landscape of the human genome, in particular DNA methylation, is increasingly recognised as an important driver of phenotypic diversity in health and disease. However, the impact that genetic variation and changes in lifestyle and ecological habitat have on this epigenetic mark remains unknown. To address this question, we analysed genome-wide SNP and DNA methylation profiles of 362 individuals from African populations of rainforest hunter-gatherers and sedentary farmers with different past and present lifestyles and ecologies.
