“Transcriptionally induced enhancers in the macrophage immune response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.” has been published in BMC Genomics.

Highlights

  • Transcribed enhancer landscape in macrophages infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
  • We identified in particular a set of enhancers that establish new transcriptional activity upon infection
  • These enhancers are highly specific to not only the tissue but also the process.
