Assay for Transposase Accessible Sequencing (ATAC-seq) at Emory University

23 December 2015

Watch this video Dr Chris Scharer of Emory University to hear how the recent description of the Assay for Transposase Accessible Chromatin sequencing (ATAC-seq) has transformed the analysis of gene regulation by allowing highly efficient generation of sequencing libraries that map regions of DNA accessible to proteins, thus identifying active promoters, enhancers, and other cis-regulatory elements. The accessibility of DNA to proteins such as transcription factors and polymerases has long been a surrogate for regulatory activity.
