ENCODE (The Encyclopedia Of DNA Elements) is a project funded by the NHGRI to identify all regions of transcription, transcription factor association, chromatin structure and histone modification in the human genome sequence. The ENCODE project published 30 papers on September 6, 2012.

ENCODE-Journal-ClubThe idea of the ENCODE Journal Club is to discuss part (if not all) of these 30 papers. We plan to discuss the 6 Nature papers at first in the first Journal Club.

All students are welcome to attain and volunteer for the journal club to present one of the papers. Your ideas and suggestions will be appreciated.
