A comprehensive encyclopedia of genomic functional elements in the model organisms C. elegans and D. melanogaster. modENCODE is run as a Research Network and the consortium is formed by 11 primary projects, divided between worm and fly, spanning the domains of gene structure, mRNA and ncRNA expression profiling, transcription factor binding sites, histone modifications and replacement, chromatin structure, DNA replication initiation and timing, and copy number variation. The raw and interpreted data from this project is vetted by a data coordinating center (DCC) to ensure consistency and completeness. The entire modENCODE data corpus is now available on the Amazon Web Services EC2 cloud. What this means is that virtual machines and virtual compute clusters that you run within the EC2 cloud can mount the modENCODE data set in whole or in part. Your software can run analyses against the data files directly without experiencing the long waits and logistics associated with copying the datasets over to your local hardware. You may also view the data using GBrowse, Dataset Search, or download the data via FTP, as well as download pre-release datasets.
