What's Driving Specific Patterns Of Gene Expression Among Cell Types?

Friday, March 27, 2009 - 08:28 in Biology & Nature

Providing another tool to help to understand gene regulation on a global scale, a nationwide research team has identified and mapped 55,000 enhancers, short regions of DNA that act to enhance or boost the expression of genes. The map will help scientists understand how cells control expression of genes specific to their particular cell type.
