Some of our most touted advancements in weaponry involve ‘surgical strike capabilities’, the idea being that the more precisely you attack a specific target, the less unintended damage there will be. Recent innovations in genome editing, such as CRISPRs and TALENs, may provide researchers with an improved genomic targeting system, enabling more precise aiming towards […]

If you’ve ever struggled to make sense of your ChIP Seq data, then check out this webinar presented by our colleagues at Active Motif, to get some ideas on how to bring some order to the chaos of ChIP-seq. Presented by Brian Egan, Ph.D, Epigenetic Services Manager at Active Motif Normalization of ChIP-seq Data Today, […]
Dr. Marianne Rots, Professor of Molecular Epigenetics and Head of Epigenetic Editing Laboratory at University of Groningen, Netherlands provides an informative overview of the current state of epigenetic editing approaches. Intro to Epigenetic Editing Epigenetic editing exploits the two main characteristics of epigenetics. On the one hand, epigenetic marks are heritable. This means the epigenetic […]
Johanna Samuelsson Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist at Active Motif covers some techniques to get killer data, even when your samples don’t make it easy. ChIP Overview I’m going to talk about chromatin immunoprecipitation, not necessarily focusing on all the specific details, but more the challenges with the technique, and those tricky samples that many of […]
Through the use of some creative chemistry researchers have devised DNA cubes that can deliver molecular packages with precision that would make FedEx jealous. A geometrically genius team from McGill University crafted a piece of DNA origami that will only release it’s molecular payload when triggered by a specific mRNA. Here’s how they did it: Cubes were […]
