## Conserved Differentially Methylated Elements from One Generation to the Next: Inheritance versus Randomness
The **methylInheritance** package implements a permutation analysis, based
on Monte Carlo sampling, for testing the
hypothesis that the number of conserved differentially methylated
elements, between several generations, is
associated to an effect inherited from a treatment and that stochastic effect
can be dismissed.
