Epigenome Mapping Centers

The Roadmap Epigenomics Program is an international collaboration.

Participants & Projects:

Overview:

The Roadmap Epigenomics Program proposes to: (1) create an international committee; (2) develop standardized platforms, procedures, and reagents for epigenomics research; (3) conduct demonstration projects to evaluate how epigenomes change; (4) develop new technologies for single cell epigenomic analysis and in vivo imaging of epigenetic activity; and (5) create a public data resource to accelerate the application of epigenomics approaches.

Objectives:

Transforming biomedical research in the following ways:

  • Develop comprehensive reference epigenome maps
  • Develop new technologies for comprehensive epigenomic analyses
A series of five interrelated initiatives are currently being developed under this program.
