 About the 2016 Award Winners

 
 

His work has broad relevance because understanding the regulatory logic encoded in the non-coding genome is one of the key challenges in biomedical sciences today. The non-coding genome encompasses more than 98% of our genome and houses all the information of when and where which genes are expressed. Therefore, the regulatory genome implements and controls cellular fate during developmental programs and maintenance of cellular identity throughout our body. Not surprisingly, perturbations of the genomic control mechanisms often lead to diseases, including cancer.
