Objective: In female mice, one of the two X chromosomes is inactivated during early development to ensure dosage compensation between genders.
Chapters 3-36 cover basic concepts and mid-level detail on many topics in the field, including histone modifications, DNA methylation, model organisms and paradigms, differences between plants and animals, X chromosomes and dosage compensation, germline cells, and the impact of genetics on the understanding of systemic development and disease.
The genetic sources of variation can be associated with the presence of the extra maternal set of chromosomes and can involve simple gene dosage (additivity) between chromosome sets or positive or negative dosage compensation effects (heterosis), epigenetic mechanisms, and transcriptional co-suppression (negative gene dosage compensation) [19].
