(A) Schematic representation of the major methods that are being used to detect functional elements (gray boxes), represented on an idealized model of mammalian chromatin and a mammalian gene. (B) The overall data flow from the production groups after reproducibility assessment to the Data Coordinating Center (UCSC) for public access and to other public databases. Data analysis is performed by production groups for quality control and research, as well as at a cross-Consortium level for data integration.
