    Regulatory annotation of plant genomes using functional chromatin signatures and comparative sequence analysis Promoter : Prof. Dr. Klaas Vandepoele Co-promoter: Prof. Dr. Ir. Jan Fostier The main objective of this project is to develop new methods to detect functional and regulatory elements in plant genomes. Apart from comparative non-coding sequence analysis (using semi-alignment based phylogenetic footprinting methods), different epigenomics data sets will be integrated to delineate chromatin signatures and annotate the non-coding DNA of different plants.
