|Subject||“Data-driven and technical approaches to understand spatial gene regulation”|
|Summary|| Gene expression is precisely regulated by transcription factors and chromatin structures, but their combinatorial actions for cell type-specific expression are not fully understood. Here, I developed a database designated ChIP-Atlas (https://chip-atlas.org), which integrates all of public ChIP-seq data (~120,000 experiments). Furthermore, I established a novel spatial genomics technology, named photo-isolation chemistry, which allows to isolate gene expression and epigenetic profiles only from photo-irradiated regions out of whole tissues. Combination of those data-driven and technical approaches will accelerate to gain deeper insight into spatial gene regulatory mechanisms.
