I have read quite some articles but I can't figure out the main reason for gc content deviation in prokaryotes. In eukaryotes I can understand it, because the genome isn't composed at random, like ...
CpG content varies a lot across the human genome. What does determine a promoter to be silenced through DNA methylation: the fraction of CpG sites that are methylated or the total number of methylated ...
Cytosine residues in DNA that can be methylated (i.e. CpG sites) are likely to be in the same methylation state if they are geographically (proximally) close together. I can only find one paper that ...
