ENCODE, modENCODE Data Reveal Conserved Regulatory Features Across Model Organisms, Humans | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A set of studies published online today in Nature offers a look at similarities and differences detected in the regulatory machinery over time and across organisms.

By drawing on data generated through the ENCODE and modENCODE projects, members of those consortia considered the interplay between gene expression profiles, chromatin network arrangements, and other regulatory features in human, fruit fly, and Caenorhabditis elegans worm tissues — efforts that revealed extensive conservation for some aspects of the regulatory process.
