Study Description

How the genome activates or silences transcriptional programmes governs organ formation. Little is known about this in human post-implantation embryos undermining our ability to benchmark the fidelity of in vitro stem cell differentiation or cell programming, or interpret noncoding variation as potential causes of disease. Here, by studying histone modification we identified genome-wide open chromatin states and active repression across thirteen tissues during human organogenesis. We integrated the data with transcription to build the first view of how promoter states from nearly 20,000 genes differentially regulate alternative organ fates, arguing against bivalency during human organogenesis. The data illustrate tissue-specific as well as complex patterns of enhancer activity functional in zebrafish and impute master transcription factors. Overlaying 739 noncoding de novo mutations in patients allowed phenotypic correlation of developmental disorders to unanticipated target genes. Taken together, the data provide a comprehensive genomic framework for understanding normal and ... (Show More)
