Connecting the regulatory genome

Nature Genetics volume 48, pages 479480 (2016) | Download Citation

Determining how the evolving genome-wide map of distal regulatory elements is connected with target genes has remained a significant challenge, despite progress in understanding chromatin architecture and regulation. A new study presents a computational approach for predicting distal element–gene interactions.
