Chromatin insulators or boundaries are proposed to structure the chromatin fiber into functionally independent domains by promoting the formation of chromatin loops. These elements can block the communication between an enhancer and a gene when placed between them. Interestingly, it has been previously observed that two tandem copies of the Drosophila(More)
The sequencing of individual genetic information may provide a powerful tool for elucidating the mechanism by which individual SNPs affect promoter function. Here, we assessed the genome of a Russian male that was previously sequenced. The RNA-Seq data from blood cells revealed 234 candidate transcripts with shifts of greater than 1.5-fold from equal(More)
