Program Snapshot

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.
