Transcriptional regulatory code is a system of rules that control temporal and spatial specific gene expression pattern. The talk will cover how to mapĀ cis-Regualtory Elements (the basic unit of transcriptional regulatory code), understand their regulatory functions and utilize this knowledge to improve our understanding of human diseases.
