Ovarian cancer has a poor prognosis, with different outcomes for different patients. The mechanism underlying this poor prognosis and heterogeneity is not well understood. We have developed an unbiased, adaptive clustering approach to integratively analyze ovarian cancer genome-wide gene expression, DNA methylation, microRNA expression, and copy number(More)
Epigenetic modification as an intrinsic fine-tune program cooperates with key transcription factors to regulate the cell fate determination. The histone acetylation participating in neural differentiation of pluripotent stem cells is expected but not well studied. Here, using acetylated histone H3 ChIP-sequencing (ChIP-seq), we demonstrate that the histone(More)
Cell fate determination requires the cooperation between extrinsic signals and intrinsic molecules including transcription factors as well as epigenetic regulators. Nevertheless, how neural fate commitment is regulated by epigenetic modifications remains largely unclear. Here we show that transient histone deacetylation at epiblast stage promotes neural(More)
Super-enhancers are defined as cluster of enhancers with dense TF binding, which can activate proximal cell-identity gene expression. Here we review the identification, functional significance of super-enhancers, and their relationships with cancer. With the current intense interests in super-enhancers, more super-enhancers will be defined and studied in(More)
Dietary interventions dramatically affect metabolic disease and lifespan in various aging models. Here, we profiled liver microRNA (miRNA), coding, and long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) expression by high-throughput deep sequencing in mice across multiple energy intake and expenditure interventions. Strikingly, three dietary intervention network design patterns(More)
