Examples

  • The absence of patent sniping might diminish some of the urgency, but the upside is that the epigenomic map is free and available to anyone -- although only a tiny fraction has thus far been made.

    Whew! Your DNA Isn't Your Destiny

  • "Epigenetics is one of the fastest-moving areas of science, period," said Melanie Ehrlich , a Tulane University epigeneticist whose lab linked human cancer to epigenomic changes in 1983.

    Whew! Your DNA Isn't Your Destiny

  • But at least the epigenomic mapping effort seems to have learned something from the gene-patenting frenzy that loomed over the Human Genome Project.

    Whew! Your DNA Isn't Your Destiny

  • The broad aim of this project will be to gain insight into the underlying genetic and epigenomic processes that direct this transcriptional programme and how ultimately this drives the disease process.

  • ASD, investigate epigenomic changes in the brain, and accelerate clinical trials of novel pharmacological and behavioral interventions.

    Autism Hub

  • DNA analyses of 300 autism spectrum disorder cases, and will launch the first epigenomic studies of brain samples from individuals with and without autism.

  • SIRT1 (see below), suggesting a possible mechanistic link between DNA damage, epigenomic state and ageing.

  • "We found the iPS cells were not as completely reprogrammed as the nuclear transfer stem cells," said co-senior author Andrew Feinberg, MD, MPH, director of the Center for Epigenetics at Johns Hopkins, whose group did systematic epigenomic analyses of the cells.

  • The utility of GREAT is not limited to ChIP-seq, as it could also be applied to open chromatin, localized epigenomic markers and similar functional data sets, as well as comparative genomics sets.
