DEEP (German Epigenome Program)

This five-year prgram (2012-2017) which is being funded by the German Science Minsirty with roughly 20 M€ represents the German contribution to the International Human Epigenome Consoritum (IHEC). The project comprises the measurement and biological interpretation of about 70 reference epigenomes from (mostly) human and mouse. The focus is on metabolic and immunological diseases. The Center provides the coordinator off DEEP (Jörn Walter, Genetics and Epigenetics, UdS) and the coordinator of the data analysis effort in the project (Thomas Lengauer, MPI Informatics).
