(The whole collection—six papers in Nature , 18 in Genome Research , four in Genome Biology , and one in BioMed Central Genetics —is posted with open access at Nature Encode . The lead article, “Architecture of the human regulatory network derived from ENCODE data ,” is must reading for information-systems designers.) Just a few years ago, the prevailing wisdom said that the genome comprises 3 percent or so genes and 97 percent “junk” (with 2 or 3 percent of that junk consisting of the fossilized remains of retroviruses that infected our ancestors somewhere along the line).
