Encode Project

I’m sure many of you will have seen recent newspaper articles about the publication of the first results from the Encode Project. ENCODE, the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements, is a project funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute to identify all regions of transcription, transcription factor association, chromatin structure and histone modification in the human genome sequence. I have yet to find a good lay explanation but those with a biology background may find this link interesting. The really braveĀ can dip into the data presented as threads here.
