Expansions of DNA repeats can lead to diseases but are very hard to analyze. A new method now allows for a detailed look at these previously inaccessible regions of the genome.
The new multifunctional tool CRUP makes the prediction of enhancer regions in the genome quick and easy, and thereby making the method more accessible to other researchers.
The International Max Planck Research School for Biology And Computation (IMPRS-BAC) is a graduate program at the interface of molecular life sciences and computational sciences.
