Dysregulated epigenetic developmental programs are a feature of many cancers, and the diverse differentiation states of immune cells as well as their dysfunctional states in tumors are in part epigenetically encoded. We developed an integrative computational strategy to exploit genome-wide data on chromatin accessibility (DNase-seq or ATAC-seq), histone modifications (ChIP-seq), and transcription (RNA-seq) in order to study enhancer landscape and gene expression dynamics in cellular differentiation, with a focus on the hematopoietic system.
