Epidemiology postdoc Dr. Lucas Salas' research was featured on the cover of the journal Epigenetics. Dr. Salas, who is in Brock Christensen's lab, and his co-authors studied global DNA methylation dysregulation patterns across cancer types, showing a higher impact in CpG-poor areas of the genome. This work enhances scientific understanding of the impact of epigenetic changes across cancer types.
