Recent studies have focused on the identification of imprinting centers and on the elucidation of the mechanisms by which they control imprinting. These studies begin to shed light on the means by which imprinting marks are established in the gametes and on the various molecular strategies utilized to execute differential expression of the two parental alleles.
