Life in 3D: How variations in our molecular make-up are controlled within our DNA

20 agosto 2015

New light has been shed on how the variations in our molecular make-up, such as gene expression, are controlled within our DNA. The research leads to a greater understanding of how certain genetic variants can ‘switch’ on or off the regulatory elements which control the expression of genes and ultimately the manifestation of an individual’s characteristics and disease predispositions.
