While collecting blood spots may seem like a hobby best left for a TV serial killer like Dexter Morgan, a novel low-pass whole-genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS) approach has shown that newborn dried blood spots are more than just a trophy. Their entire methylome can be assayed to answer enticing epigenomic enigmas. DNA methylation array studies have […]

Dr. Guillaume Bourque from McGill University discusses his lab’s bioinformatic research examining the epigenomics of non-coding DNA sequence variants at the 2019 joint CEEHRC/IHEC meeting.
Dr. John Greally from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine discusses his group’s research into the epigenomics of human health at the 2019 joint CEEHRC/IHEC meeting.
Become a ChIP Assay Expert! The chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assay is one of the best ways to study the association of DNA-binding proteins with chromatin and the localization of histone modifications throughout the genome. But ChIP assays take time to master. Our friends at Active Motif have put together this free ChIP 101 eBook that […]
When it comes to love, being single has its pros and cons. This is also true for cells, single cells give a lot high-resolution picture, but it’s often very difficult to get enough material. While other single cell methods have flourished with low inputs, studies of the heterogeneity of chromatin states by single cell chromatin […]
