February: Scientists create a new "roadmap" for the human epigenome

Read more

February's Genome Advance of the Month is about the Roadmap Epigenomics Project and its aim to catalog the epigenome of different human cell types. The epigenome consists of chemical compounds that modify the genome and tell it what to do. The project, which published its initial findings in the February 18 issue of Nature, hopes to increase our understanding of how the epigenome contributes to health as well as disease. Read more
