NIH Issues Atlas on Human DNA Differences Influencing Gene Expression

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has issued a detailed atlas documenting the stretches of human DNA that influence gene expression – a key way in which a person’s genome gives rise to an observable trait, like hair color or disease risk.  This atlas is a critical resource for the scientific community interested in how individual genomic variation leads to biological differences, like healthy and diseased states, across human tissues and cell types.  To read the NIH announcement and summary of its new atlas of human DNA differences that influence gene expression, use the link below.
