Now the €30 million new European BLUEPRINT project is set to become another key contributor, with investigators from different European countries aiming to contribute at least 100 new reference epigenomes to the IHEC, which seeks 1000 in total by 2020. Researchers will sequence and map epigenomes from 60 different cell types from healthy humans, and a further 60 plus from blood cancer cell types, as well as lower resolution epigenomes from more healthy individuals.
