Suggestions for ENCODE reportsTry to use ENCODE to explain cytodifferentiation
How gene sequences and maps help explain co-expression of specific sets of non-linked genes.
Possible molecular mechanisms of mutual-exclusiveness of expression (transcription? protein synthesis?) of being a liver cell versus being a heart cell, or being a macrophage.
Do base sequences and locations of genes (or any other aspect) help to explain the branching pathways
of progressive divergence and narrowing of cell fate?
If ENCODE obstructed your efforts to solve some particular problem or set of problems, then your group can describe
* How you used ENCODE searching to find what you wanted
* What ENCODE gave you instead
* What you think might be the explanation
* How ENCODE could be better and more useful.
Analyse and explain the "junk DNA" debate and hype. Explain different meanings of "junk-ness" of DNA.
