The Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) Consortium is entering its 5th year of productionlevel effort generating high-quality whole-genome functional annotations of the human genome. The past year has brought the ENCODE compendium of functional elements to critical mass, with a diverse set of 27 biochemical assays now covering 200 distinct human cell types. Within the mouse genome, which has been under study by ENCODE groups for the past 2 years, 37 cell types have been assayed. Over 2000 individual experiments have been completed and submitted to the Data Coordination Center for public use. UCSC makes this data available on the quality-reviewed public Genome Browser (http://genome.ucsc.edu) and on an early-access Preview Browser (http://genomepreview. ucsc.edu). Visual browsing, data mining and download of raw and processed data files are all supported. An ENCODE portal (http:// encodeproject.org) provides specialized tools and information about the ENCODE data sets.
