Study Description

For the NIH Roadmap Epigenomics project, we applied ChlP-Seq, HTBS and WGBS pipelines to generate comprehensive high-resolution maps of chromatin state and DNA methylation for 100 diverse cell types. Cell types were selected for their biological and medical importance, and for their potential to maximize the comprehensiveness of acquired epigenomic data. They include human ES cells, ES-derived cells, mesenchymal stem cells, reprogrammed stem cells and primary tissues. Comprehensive characterization of epigenetic marks ("the epigenome") is a critical step towards a global understanding of the human genome in health and disease. In this study we provide unprecedented views of the human epigenetic landscape and its variation across cell states, which offer fundamental insight into the functions and interrelationships of epigenetic marks, and provide a framework for future studies of normal and diseased epigenomes.
