Method Sites of transcription of polyadenylated and nonpolyadenylated RNAs for 10 human chromosomes were mapped at 5-base pair resolution in eight cell lines.
Comments using both whole genome tiling arrays and tagging, the Encyclopedia of the DNA element (ENCODE) pilot project has demonstrated that up to 93% of the human genome may be transcribed in multiple RNAs
