The purpose of this database is to provide the scientific community with a resource to store DNA methylation data and to make these data readily available to the public. Futur development of the database will focus on environmental effects on DNA methylation. Descriptions of MethDB has been published in the database issues of Nucleic Acids Research in 2001 [PDF] and 2003 [PDF] (reproduced with permission from NAR Online), the Journal of Nutrition [PDF] in 2002, and 2006 in Epigenetics [PDF]
