The primary aim of this study is to explore and characterize the methylation profiles of myelodysplastic syndrome patients via an online, community outreach process, with CRUSH!!MDS as a platform. We aim to characterize the methylation profiles of myelodysplastic syndrome patients who have previously failed hypomethylating agents (HMA). We will characterize methylation profiles of subjects’ granulocytes in peripheral blood, utilizing methylation platform developed by Dr. Joseph Scandura at Weill Cornell Medical College.
