The Hong Kong Epigenomics Project (EpiHK) consists of researchers from five institutions in Hong Kong. Led by groups in the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), it is a collaborative project bringing together clinical researchers, basic scientists, bioengineers, and bioinformaticians to study novel aspects of epigenomics. As a member of IHEC, EpiHK will be generating reference epigenomic maps of purified human cell-types from the brain, liver, skeletal muscles, and other tissues. Combining the expertise of the various members, EpiHK aims to gain insights into the epigenetics of both normal physiology and diseases.
