Definition:A DNA region that includes DNAse hypersensitive sites located near a gene that confers the high-level, position-independent, and copy number-dependent expression to that gene.
Comment:Definition updated Nov 10 2020, Colin Logie from GREEKC helped us realize that LCRs can also be located 3' to a gene.
