Blueprint Team Describes Epigenetic, Transcriptional Patterns at Play During Blood Cell Development | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A set of studies published online today in Science is starting to spell out the epigenetic processes that regulate transitions from stem cells into various blood cell types — from oxygen-carrying red blood cells to the diverse white blood cells behind the body's complex immune responses.

The research was done through Blueprint, a European consortium focused on the regulatory and transcriptional features that determine blood cell differentiation and development.
