What are the keys to successful bisulfite conversion?


Bisulfite conversion is the most popular method for DNA methylation analysis and the most convenient and effective way to map DNA methylation to individual bases. Yet there are many things to consider in order for you to get reliable results.

In particular, the bisulfite treatment of DNA and the resulting conversion of unmethylated cytosines to uracils is the most critical step in methylation analysis. The efficiency of this reaction has a significant impact on the reliability of downstream analyses. Do you know all the factors involved in optimizing this process?
