The Encyclopedia of DNA Elements
(ENCODE) Consortium is an international collaboration
of research groups funded by the National Human Genome Research
The goal of ENCODE is to build a comprehensive parts list of
functional elements in the human genome, including elements that
act at the protein and RNA levels,
and regulatory elements that control cells and
circumstances in which a gene is active.
To search for ENCODE data related to your area of interest and set up a browser view, use the UCSC
Experiment Matrix or
Track Search tool (Advanced features).
The Experiment List (Human) and
Experiment List (Mouse) links provide
comprehensive listings of ENCODE data that is released or in preparation.
All ENCODE data is freely available for download and analysis.
However, before publishing research that uses ENCODE data,
please read the ENCODE Data Release Policy,
which places some restrictions on publication use of data for nine
months following data release.
