The engine room of the genome


“El Mundo” has produced an article to mark the publication of 24 papers on epigenetics in journals belonging to the Nature group. These papers are the result of the endeavours of hundreds of scientists participating in the Epigenomics Mapping Programme, launched by the USA National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2008, and its European equivalent project, called Blueprint Epigenome. The article includes statements by Ferran Azorín, group leader of the Chromatin Structure and Function Laboratory at IRB Barcelona and CSIC research professor.
