Exploring the Epigenome by Multiplexed Physical Mapping of Individual Chromosomes

Project description

Exploring the effect of long-range epigenetic modifications

Epigenetic modifications are chemical tags on DNA and chromatin that affect DNA accessibility and gene expression. They are heritable but do not involve alterations in the actual DNA sequence. Scientists of the EU-funded MultiplexGenomics project are interested to discover how epigenetic modification located far away from a gene can influence expression and can predispose individuals to certain types of cancer. Researchers will develop a platform for genomic profiling and perform physical and chemical mapping of individual chromosomes. The project has the potential to unveil novel control networks and hidden long-range regulation of genomic locations, advancing genomics science.
