New research produces first comprehensive atlas of human gene activity
Researchers has produced the first comprehensive, detailed map of the way genes work across the major cells and tissues of the human body.
The new findings could play a crucial role in identifying the genes involved with disease as it describes the complex networks that govern gene activity.
Winston Hide, associate professor of bioinformatics and computational biology at Harvard School of Public Health said that for the first time it has been possible to pinpoint the regions of the genome that can be active in a disease and in normal activity.
Hide added that it is a major advance that will greatly increase our ability to understand the causes of disease across the body.
The research has been published in journal Nature.
