DNA methylation and diabetes

Dataset

Description

Data deposited here is supplementary data for the following journal article: The role of DNA methylation in type 2 diabetes aetiology - using genotype as a causal anchor.
Several studies have investigated the relationship between genetic variation and DNA methylation with respect to type 2 diabetes but it is unknown if DNA methylation is a mediator in the disease pathway or if it is altered in response to disease state. This study uses genotypic information as a causal anchor to help decipher the likely role of DNA methylation measured in peripheral blood in the aetiology of type 2 diabetes.
