While chromosome conformation capture (3C) methods like single-cell Hi-C focus on coupled pairs of chromosome contacts, and even their promiscuous regions, candid snapshots of chromosomal threesomes have remained an intimate secret … until now. The genomic architects in the labs of Ana Pombo and Mario Nicodemi developed a new method and accompanying statistical model to […]
Keeping up with the rapidly evolving technology landscape for epigenetics and non-coding RNA research can be daunting. Learn more about the available methods out there and stay on top of the latest developments in our Technology section.
Don’t you just hate when you’re trying to get from A to B and google maps can’t even figure out where you’re starting from? Well, just like your last trip to that hot new sushi place, the precise location of lncRNA origins has only been plotted with blurry lines. Thankfully, to aid the start of […]
Ever fancy a go with a new technique only to find that the methods section of the paper is holding out on the most intimate details? While single-cell bisulfite sequencing (scBs-seq) has been lusted after by many a researcher, mingling with those single cells has proved a bit more challenging. But fear not, the labs […]
Are you crazy for CRISPR-Cas9? Are you gaga for in vivo gene editing? You should probably get out more, but in the meantime we have just the study for you. A new Nature Biotechnology study from the lab of Jennifer A Doudna has described a major step toward the in vivo application of CRISPR-Cas9-mediated gene […]
For those living in the more Northern climes, this is just about the time when you would give nearly anything for a sunny pool party. When it comes to pool parties, CRISPR turns out to be a pretty good host, but with one important caveat – CRISPR pool parties tend to be life-or-death affairs. Pooled […]
