The Nature ENCODE app for the iPad brings together the results of the ENCODE project, presented in 30 papers published simultaneously in Nature, Genome Research and Genome Biology.

ENCODE, the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements, is a project funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute to identify all regions of transcription, transcription factor association, chromatin structure and histone modification in the human genome sequence. Thanks to the identification of these functional elements, 80% of the human genome now has at least one biochemical function associated with it. This expansive resource of functional annotations is already providing new insights into the organization and regulation of our genes and genome.

To help you navigate through this array of data and analyses, Nature has created the Nature ENCODE explorer. You can discover the project’s results in the conventional way, by visiting individual papers, or you can engage with the material by following ‘Threads’, each one dedicated to a theme discussed in more than one paper.

The app also includes a feature article, opinion pieces and videos describing the background, the potential impact and the future of the project.
