'Most comprehensive map' of human epigenomes is unveiled

This sounds like an enormous amount of work and an an enourmous repository of infomration that will power research for years to come. I'm simply amazed at how far this sort of work has come in such a short period.

The 24 papers describing human epigenomes will appear in print on Feb. 19, 2015 in the journal Nature and in six other journals under the aegis of Nature Publishing Group. Collectively, the papers are a culmination of years of research by hundreds of participants in the Roadmap Epigenomics Program (REP), first proposed in 2006 by academic scientists and key members of the National Institutes of Health. All will be freely available at Nature’s Epigenome Roadmap website.
