Study Description

Working cooperatively with other Mapping Centers and the Data Coordination Center (EDACC) funded by this Roadmap mechanism we have comprehensively mapped the epigenomes of select human cells with significant relevance to complex human disease. Our effort has been focused on cells relevant to human health and complex disease including cells from the blood, brain, breast, skin, male germ cells, extraembryonic tissues and trophoblast, and U.S. Government-approved lines of human embryonic stem cells. We have incorporated high quality, homogeneous cells from males and females, and two predominant racial groups, and biological replicates of each cell type. The resulting comprehensive maps include up to 6 histone modifications selected for their opposing roles in regulating active and inactive chromatin (H3K4me1, H3K4me3, H3K9me3, H3K9ac, H3K27ac, H3K27me3, H3K36me3), DNA methylation, miRNA and gene expression, and for select cases whole genome shotgun sequence. Our cell and data production pipeline incorporates verification and data validation with independent methods, and operates ... (Show More)
