SFB 992 Medizinische Epigenetik Projekt Z01 - Tiefensequenzierung/Bioinformatik

Description of the project:
A molecular understanding of disease mechanisms requires a global approach for studying chromatin states and gene regulation. We will provide our computational infrastructure and expertise in bioinformatics and deep sequencing data analysis to the CRC 992 members to enable the genome-scale study of differential gene expression and DNA methylation patterns in various cell types and organisms. A dedicated data management centre will be developed to facilitate access, visualisation and routine analysis of the sequencing data. We will also offer regular training with a special focus on the web services provided by our group. We will thereby help to improve the capacity for epigenetic research towards the development of potential epigenetic therapies.
