Cracking the genetic code for control of gene expression
....2% of the human genome. New codes and grammatical rules
need to be resolved in order to understand the remaining 98.8% of the genome. It is evident that genes are expressed in tightly controlled spatial and temporal patterns but we do not know the code by which the expression is regulated. In this post-g...

for organization and sequence patterns and therefore is more difficult to study. "The difficulty with human genetic approaches to common disease is that we lack the power to precisely localize DNA sequences that are associated with disease, often lea...
