    • DNA methylation dynamics of the human preimplantation embryo 

      Smith, Zachary D.; Chan, Michelle M.; Humm, Kathryn C.; Karnik, Rahul; Mekhoubad, Shila; Regev, Aviv; Eggan, Kevin; Meissner, Alexander (2014)
      In mammals, cytosine methylation is predominantly restricted to CpG dinucleotides and stably distributed across the genome, with local, cell type-specific regulation directed by DNA binding factors1-3. This comparatively ...
    • Erosion of Dosage Compensation Impacts Human iPSC Disease Modeling 

      Mekhoubad, Shila; Bock, Christoph; de Boer, A. Sophie; Kiskinis, Evangelos; Meissner, Alexander; Eggan, Kevin Carl (Elsevier BV, 2012)
      Although distinct human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) lines can display considerable epigenetic variation, it has been unclear whether such variability impacts their utility for disease modeling. Here, we show that ...
    • Human pluripotent stem cells recurrently acquire and expand dominant negative P53 mutations 

      Merkle, Florian Tobias; Ghosh, Sulagna; Kamitaki, Nolan; Mitchell, Jana Marie; Avior, Yishai; Mello, Curtis Jay; Kashin, Seva; Mekhoubad, Shila; Ilic, Dusko; Sweetnam, Maura Charlton; Saphier Belfer, Genevieve C; Handsaker, Robert E; Genovese, Giulio; Bar, Shiran; Benvenisty, Nissim; McCarroll, Steven A.; Eggan, Kevin Carl (Springer Nature, 2017)
      Background: Depressive disorders are the second-leading cause of global disability, and an area of increasing focus in international health efforts. We describe a community health worker (CHW) program rolled out in a ...
