Boyle 2008, CD4+ DNase, open chromatin mapping, GSE8486


Mapping DNaseI hypersensitive (HS) sites is an accurate method of identifying the location of genetic regulatory elements, including promoters, enhancers, silencers, insulators, and locus control regions. We employed whole genome tiled array strategies to identify DNaseI HS sites within human primary CD4+ T cells.
