Bisulfite sequencing, Methylation Specific PCR and Restriction Analysis. Methylation status of cytosines of two different samples/alleles (one methylated and another unmethylated) is detected and confirmed by bisulfite sequencing. For the genomic level of 5mC analysis, bisulfite treatment can be followed by next generation sequencing (BS-seq) method. The data obtained from bisulfite sequencing can be pursued further for Methylation Specific PCR (MSP), Combined BS Restriction Analysis (COBRA) and Methylation-sensitive Single Nucleotide Primer Extension (Ms-SNuPE, explained in Fig. 4) for routine analysis of specific cytosine residues
