Epigenetics, known as heritable factors on gene expression that are not directly coded in DNA sequences, has been found to be an important part of the complicated molecular regulation systems in cells. Genome-wide observations on major epigenetics factors like DNA methylation, histone modification and nucleosome structure are emerging, raising many new questions to bioinformatics research in epigenetics or computational epigenetics study. Our current efforts focus on possible associations between genomics factors and epigenetics factors, as a step toward the final understanding of systems that involves both genetic and epigenetic factors.
