How, when and why did epigenetic silencing evolve in mammals?
examination of two mammal-specific systems, genomic imprinting and X-chromosome inactivation, from an evolutionary standpoint, using comparisons between humans, distantly related mammals (marsupials and monotremes) and other vertebrates
independent evolution of imprinting in different genomic regions and correlation with evolution of viviparity
step-wise evolution of the elements of the complex X-chromosome inactivation mechanism
