  • “Researchers have produced the first comprehensive, detailed map of the way genes work across the major cells and tissues of the human body. The findings describe the complex networks that govern gene activity, and the new information could play a crucial role in identifying the genes involved with disease.”, 
  •  “The second article, by Medvedeva et al., focused on DNA methylation. This is widely known to be involved in the repression of genes, so that the protein they code for isn’t produced. Previously, scientists were unsure whether the DNA methylation was a symptom or a cause of gene repression. This analysis of the instances where DNA methylation was associated with gene repression suggests that direct and selective blocking of transcription factor binding sites only occurs in particular cases. The authors suggest that this might mean it’s unlikely to be a general method of gene repression. These findings will help scientists to build a picture of how the genome functions in the body. ”,​

[PRESS RELEASE 4 December 2009] By measuring the total gene activity in organs relevant for coronary artery disease (CAD), scientists at the Swedish medical university Karolinska Institutet have identified a module of genes that is important for the recruitment of white blood cells into the atherosclerotic plaque.”,​
