1/ Excited to share work led by @varshney_arushi genetics.org/content/211/2/… @GeneticsGSA, we compared gene regulatory annotations defined using diverse #epigenomic data across 4 cell types to measure cell specificities and #genetics of #geneRegulation
2/ We observed that stretch and super #enhancers are more cell type-specific whereas HOT regions and broad domains comprise more ubiquitous promoter states
3/ #eQTL in stretch enhancers have significantly smaller effect sizes compared to those in HOT regions. This suggests regulatory buffering where the expression of cell-identity genes is more tightly controlled

Dr M #Karunanidhi was a scientists’ scientist. Among his numerous contributions to Tamil Nadu's development are outstanding universities like Anna University as well as the State Biotechnology Council and gender-sensitive institutions like the Women’s Biotechnology Park.
#Karunanidhi was also keen to see Tamil Nadu progress from food security to nutrition security. Long before India's #foodsecurity Act was introduced, he launched in the 1990s a ‘#Hunger -free area programme’ in order to fulfil the dream of Mahakavi Subramania Bharathiyar.
The former Chief Minister also married #science with Tamil #literature. At the World Tamil conference in 2010, Dr #Karunanidhi announced the setting up of genetic heritage gardens based on Sangam literature in five zones representing kurinji, mullai, neithal, palai and marutham.
