NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group today awarded five Allen Distinguished Investigator grants to researchers working on epigenetics, aging, and evolution.

Each award is for $1.5 million spread over three years, for a total of $7.5 million in funding.  One grant will support work by Fei Chen and Jason Buenrostro of the Broad Institute and Harvard University, respectively,  to develop methods to directly visualize the regulatory structure of the genome and sequence individual regulatory elements in cells.
