  • Enhancers: five essential questions NATURE REVIEWS GENETICS Pennacchio, L. A., Bickmore, W., Dean, A., Nobrega, M. A., Bejerano, G. 2013; 14 (4): 288-295


    It is estimated that the human genome contains hundreds of thousands of enhancers, so understanding these gene-regulatory elements is a crucial goal.

Five prominent researchers in this field look at how much we know already and what needs to be done to answer these questions.
