Enhancer usage over the human body
An atlas of active enhancers across human cell types and tissues
Enhancers control the correct temporal and cell type-specific activation of gene expression in higher eukaryotes. Knowing their properties, regulatory activity and targets is crucial to understand the regulation of differentiation and homeostasis. We use the FANTOM5 panel of samples covering the majority of human tissues and cell types to produce an atlas of active, in vivo transcribed enhancers.
