IHEC provides comprehensive sets of reference epigenomes relevant to health and disease. You can view, search and download the data already released by the different IHEC-associated projects via the IHEC data portal.
The portal features:
  • a customizable grid allowing for a quick visualization of available IHEC datasets;
  • an overview tool containing a dataset summary and providing a shortcut to the grid displaying desired members, tissues and assay categories;
  • a dynamic track hub generation visualizing tracks in UCSC Genome Browser
  • a download tool for obtaining tracks in a folder-like hierarchy, or for using standard tools such as wget
