A Toxicology User's Guide to the Roadmap Epigenomics and ENCODE Data Resources

Event Details

The Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) and the Common Fund-supported Roadmap Epigenomics Mapping Centers held a joint workshop at the Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting.The workshop featured overviews of Roadmap Epigenomics and ENCODE resources that are freely available for use by the research community, examples of common use cases, and interactive tutorials.

Attendees gained practical practical experience with searching and downloading data from the ENCODE Portal, querying ENCODE data using the ENCODE Element Browser, exploring genome-scale chromatin interaction data using the 3D Genome Browser, and using the WashU Epigenome Browser to interface with Roadmap Epigenomics and ENCODE data. Participants learned about a variety of entry points for using ENCODE and Roadmap Epigenomics data to generate hypotheses for further biological investigation.
