    Smith-Magenis syndrome (SMS) is a multiple congenital anomalies/mental retardation syndrome associated with an interstitial deletion of chromosome 17 involving band p11.2. SMS is hypothesised to be a contiguous gene syndrome in which the phenotype arises from the haploinsufficiency of multiple,...

    The author reflects on the development of the methods for targeted genome editing. It contends that zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs) were shown to cleave site specifically in cells, while transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) consist mainly of proof-of-principle reports. It argues...

    The article reports on the complexity of genome, which indicates that the development of personalized medicine is farther away. Studies of human DNA, of Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODEs) in particular, show that evidence of transcription in the regions that lie between individual genes is...

    In cells, chromatin is folded into a 30 nm fibre. Recent genome-wide studies have shown that DNasel-sensitive sites are present in both transcribed and non-transcribed genes and are enriched in the gene-dense regions of the human genome. The distribution of open chromatin has also been shown to...

    Motivation: Endogenous retrovirus (ERV) elements have been shown to contribute promoter sequences that can initiate transcription of adjacent human genes. However, the extent to which retroviral sequences initiate transcription within the human genome is currently unknown. We analyzed genome...
