ARIES is a BBSRC-funded resource of epigenomic information on a range of human tissues, including DNA methylation data on peripheral blood at multiple time points across the lifecourse.

ARIES used both Illumina Infinium 450k methylation arrays and BS-seq approaches to generate epigenetic data on a number of samples from the ALSPAC cohort. In addition genome-wide DNA methylation analysis of several human tissues in conjunction with matched peripheral blood samples was also be performed using Illumina Infinium 450k methylation arrays to enable comparison of methylation levels between tissues.
