Imprinting, the placement of epigenetic marks on chromatin of paternal or maternal alleles can influence the relative expression of those alleles.  For instance, higher expression of the maternal allele of a gene relative to the paternal allele may occur if a paternal allele carries more silencing marks (e.g. methylation) than the maternal allele.
