Tissue-specific gene expression is controlled by genetic, epigenetic and transcriptional regulatory mechanisms. a Figure illustrating the idea that identifying and studying the mechanisms through which genetic variation, DNA methylation and gene expression interact may provide us with clues to understanding regions within the genome that are associated with complex disease phenotypes. b Figure illustrating the role played by tissue-specific methylation patterns and a genetic variant in regulating gene expression
