The Common Fund's Epigenomics Program includes a series of complementary initiatives aimed at generating new research tools, technologies, datasets, and infrastructure to accelerate our understanding of how genome-wide chemical modifications to DNA regulate gene activity without altering the DNA sequence itself and what role these modifications play in health and disease.
Funding Opportunity Announcement
NEW! Funding Opportunity Announcement for the Epigenomics Program!
The Epigenomics program has released a new Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): Computational Analyses Exploiting Reference Epigenomic Maps (RFA-RM-14-001). The goal of this FOA is to encourage community use of the reference epigenomic maps that have been developed as part of the Epigenomics program. We are particularly interested in applications that integrate information from reference epigenomic maps with other data types, either existing public datasets or investigator-generated data.

Overview of Epigenomics program resources
Watch Epigenomics grantee John Stamatoyannopoulos’ lecture “A Roadmap to the Living Genome,” in which he presents research describing new epigenomic maps for a wide variety of normal human cell/tissue types; insights into the genomic patterning of epigenomic features; and encoding of cellular state, maturity, and fate information within epigenomic landscapes.
