Genetic landmarks

Georgia Tech researchers (l-r) King Jordan, Lavanya Rishishwar, Emily Norris and Lu Wang with a diagram showing Mammalian-wide Interspersed Repeats (MIRs). Their study found that MIRs can serve as genetic landmarks that help to target specific regulatory mechanisms to a large number of genomic sites and thereby lead to the coordinated regulation of the genes located nearby these sites.
