Technology Development in Epigenomics
This initiative will support technology development in two important areas of epigenetics research. The first area is to develop technologies that will revolutionize epigenetic profiling and/or whole epigenome studies. The second area is to enable in vivo imaging of epigenetic changes in cells, tissues and eventually intact organisms. This initiative will be launched under two separate RFAs – an R01 (research project) and an R21 (exploratory/developmental project) – both of which are due to release in Fall 2007, with funding expected to begin in Fall 2008.
