Epigenomic Map Identifies Candidate Mechanisms for 30,000 Gene Loci Linked to 540 Traits

MIT researchers published EpiMap, which they claim is the most comprehensive map yet of human noncoding DNA. They say that 20 years on from the first public release of the human genome, the new resource effectively offers a map of noncoding annotations, together with the modules, upstream regulators, downstream targets, disease variants, and interpretation of disease variants.
