|ENCODE results published in Nature, Genome Biology, Genome Research and other journals||Kate Rosenbloom||9/5/12 12:02 PM|
The results of the ENCODE project were published today in a coordinated
set of 30 papers published in multiple journals. The new Integrative
Analysis <http://encodeproject.org/ENCODE/analysis.html> page on the
ENCODE portal provides links and descriptive material for these
publications and related analysis resources.
The results are the product of cross-consortium integrative analysis,
covering more than 4 million regulatory regions in the human genome
mapped as part of ENCODE. The coordinated publication set includes one
main integrative paper and five other papers in the journal /Nature/; 18
papers in /Genome Research/; and six papers in /Genome Biology/. The
ENCODE data are so complex that the three journals have developed a
pioneering way to present the information in an integrated form they
term "threads." Since the same topics were addressed in different ways
in different papers, the /Nature/ ENCODE website
<http://www.nature.com/encode/> was developed to allow readers to follow
a topic through all of the papers in the ENCODE publication set.
In addition to these publications, six review articles are being
published in the /Journal of Biological Chemistry/, and other affiliated
papers in /Science/, /Cell/, and other journals.
