DNA methylation is a covalent modification of DNA bases, which exists in all higher organisms. DNA methylation can turn off the activity of some genes, while demethylation can induce the reactivation and expression of genes, thus leading to the change of gene expression. DNA methylation plays an important role in maintaining normal cell function, genetic imprinting, embryonic development and human disease. With the development of methylation research, a variety of methylation detection methods have been developed to meet the requirements of different types of research. These methods can be divided into three categories: the detection of the overall level of methylation, the verification of the methylation of gene specific sites and the search for new methylation sites.
