(Global DNA methylation is defined as methylation levels measured in aggregate for all genetic material, not specific to one or more genes.) Center researchers analyzed global DNA methylation levels in blood at two different time points. Cord blood was analyzed from 279 children who are part of the Center’s Mothers & Newborns study in Northern Manhattan and the South Bronx. Of these children, 165 also had blood collected at age 3. The authors found that cord blood methylation was correlated with and significantly predicted the level of methylation at 3 years old.
