Core Transcriptional Regulatory Circuitry in Human Embryonic Stem Cells
The transcription factors OCT4, SOX2, and NANOG have essential roles in early development and are required for the propagation of undifferentiated embryonic stem (ES) cells in culture. To gainExpand

Transcriptional Regulatory Networks in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
We have determined how most of the transcriptional regulators encoded in the eukaryote Saccharomyces cerevisiaeassociate with genes across the genome in living cells. Just as maps of metabolicExpand

Master Transcription Factors and Mediator Establish Super-Enhancers at Key Cell Identity Genes
Master transcription factors Oct4, Sox2, and Nanog bind enhancer elements and recruit Mediator to activate much of the gene expression program of pluripotent embryonic stem cells (ESCs). We reportExpand

Histone H3K27ac separates active from poised enhancers and predicts developmental state
Developmental programs are controlled by transcription factors and chromatin regulators, which maintain specific gene expression programs through epigenetic modification of the genome. TheseExpand

Super-Enhancers in the Control of Cell Identity and Disease
Super-enhancers are large clusters of transcriptional enhancers that drive expression of genes that define cell identity. Improved understanding of the roles that super-enhancers play in biologyExpand

Polycomb complexes repress developmental regulators in murine embryonic stem cells
The mechanisms by which embryonic stem (ES) cells self-renew while maintaining the ability to differentiate into virtually all adult cell types are not well understood. Polycomb group (PcG) proteinsExpand

Control of Developmental Regulators by Polycomb in Human Embryonic Stem Cells
Polycomb group proteins are essential for early development in metazoans, but their contributions to human development are not well understood. We have mapped the Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 (PRC2)Expand

Selective Inhibition of Tumor Oncogenes by Disruption of Super-Enhancers
Chromatin regulators have become attractive targets for cancer therapy, but it is unclear why inhibition of these ubiquitous regulators should have gene-specific effects in tumor cells. Here, weExpand

Remodeling of yeast genome expression in response to environmental changes.
We used genome-wide expression analysis to explore how gene expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is remodeled in response to various changes in extracellular environment, including changes inExpand

Connecting microRNA Genes to the Core Transcriptional Regulatory Circuitry of Embryonic Stem Cells
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are crucial for normal embryonic stem (ES) cell self-renewal and cellular differentiation, but how miRNA gene expression is controlled by the key transcriptional regulators of ESExpand
