NIH Roadmap Epigenomics Program
NIH announced funding for the new NIH Roadmap Epigenomic Program. NIH will invest more than $190 million over the next five years with the first grants to total approximately $18 million in 2008. Epigenomics is the genome wide study of epigenetics (heritable changes in gene expression caused by mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence). You can read the NIH News story here.
