Brief description Thyroid hormones are regulators of development and metabolism. The lack of concordance of thyroid function and disease in identical twins suggests that environmental effects have a significant role. Quantifying epigenetic modifications, such as DNA methylation, has the potential to identify causal effects from the environment. This research will provide a comprehensive database of DNA methylome alterations that will contribute important insights into thyroid function in health and disease.
