To further reveal the genome-wide methylation pattern, MeDIP-Seq reads distribution were analyzed in 2 kb region upstream of the transcription start sites (TSS), 5'-UTRs, coding DNA sequence (CDS), introns, 3'-UTRs, 2 kb region downstream of the transcription termination site (TTS) and repeats (Figure 2).
The team found that this process was driven by ancient transposons--stretches of nonprotein coding DNA that can change their position within the genome.
