MAB-5 Combined (Pol II ChIP)

Identification of Pol II Binding Regions in MAB-5::GFP L3 (Snyder project,Snyder subgroup)

General Description

We are identifying the DNA binding sites for 300 transcription factors in C. elegans. Each transcription factor gene is tagged with the same GFP fusion protein, permitting validation of the gene's correct spatio-temporal expression pattern in transgenic animals. Chromatin immunoprecipitation on each strain is peformed using an anti-GFP antibody, and any bound DNA is deep-sequenced using Solexa GA2 technology.
