ChromoHub: a data hub for navigators of chromatin-mediated signalling

Genes involved in chromatin-mediated signalling constitute emerging target classes for future therapies. Here, we map on phylogenetic trees information published by the scientific community on the therapeutic relevance, the biology, the structure of these genes, and related chemical inhibitors.
