Resources & Tools



The Danish National Research Foundation’s Centre for Epigenetics
The Centre for Epigenetics was established in 2007 as a ‘Centre of Excellence’ funded by The Danish National Research Foundation. The Centre brings together the distinct expertise of five research groups – four of them located at BRIC (University of Copen-hagen) and one at Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (University of Southern Denmark).

The Epigenetics Center of the Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences
The Epigenetics Center of the Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences has brought together an outstanding team of multidisciplinary investigators to explore the epigenetic basis of normal development and disease. One of the Center’s major goals is to develop novel technology that will provide cutting edge tools to the Hopkins community allowing our scientists to make the first discoveries in this exciting frontier.

The USC Epigenome Center
The USC Epigenome Center conducts genome-scale epigenetic and genetic data production and analysis, technology development, and cutting-edge epigenomic and population-based genomic research

The Penn Epigenetics Program
The Penn Epigenetics Program was established in 2009 by the Dean of Medicine to promote and develop basic research in chromatin biology and epigenetics, and to encourage collaborations between basic and clinical research in epigenetics.

The UCSC Genome Bioinformatics site
The UCSC Genome Bioinformatics site contains the reference sequence and working draft assemblies for a large collection of genomes. It also provides portals to the ENCODE and Neandertal projects.

NIH Roadmap Epigenomics Mapping Consortium
The NIH Roadmap Epigenomics Mapping Consortium was launched with the goal of producing a public resource of human epigenomic data to catalyze basic biology and disease-oriented research.

Human Epigenome Atlas
The Human Epigenome Atlas includes human reference epigenomes and the results of their integrative and comparative analyses.

International Human Epigenome Consortium
The International Human Epigenome Consortium seeks to coordinate the production of reference maps of human epigenomes for key cellular states relevant to health and diseases.
