New insights into non-coding DNA

The Meyerson group identifies a further avenue leading to oncogene activation. Amplification of non coding DNA in Lung and Endometrial tissues can promote increased transcription leading to carcinogenesis.

Amplification of super-enhancers can be systematically analysed by combining genomic and epigenetic data from normal and cancer tissues.
