NIH-supported researchers map epigenome of more than 100 tissue and cell types

NIH-supported researchers map epigenome of more than 100 tissue and cell types | Epigene | Scoop.it
Much like mapping the human genome laid the foundations for understanding the genetic basis of human health, new maps of the human epigenome may further unravel the complex links between DNA and disease. The epigenome is part of the machinery that helps direct how genes are turned off and on in different types of cells. Researchers supported by the National Institutes of Health Common Fund's Roadmap Epigenomics Program have mapped the epigenomes of more than 100 types of cells and tissues, p
