DNA methylation: Mega-year inheritance with the help of Darwin

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

DNA methylation in a fungal pathogen has persisted for millions of years without the enzyme that can efficiently add methyl groups de novo. This spectacular example of ‘epigenetic’ inheritance is explained by a super-efficient maintenance enzyme plus natural selection.
