The grade for PRDE included evaluation of discussion participation, a case study presentation, and a marketing plan team assignment.
The authors report significant inverse correlations ([alpha] = 0.05) for methylation based on the Alu assay with age and 6 of 9 OCs (adjusted correlation coefficients of -0.2 to -0.3) and inverse but nonsignificant correlations with most of the measured PCBs and both PRDEs. However, LINE-1 assay results did not indicate associations between methylation and age or any of the measured POPs.
