Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field that develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data.
Chromatin Interaction Analysis by Paired-End Tag Sequencing (ChIA-PET) is a technique that incorporates chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP)-based enrichment, chromatin proximity ligation, Paired-End Tags, and High-throughput sequencing to determine de novo long-range chromatin interactions genome-wide.
Chromatin is a complex of macromolecules found in cells, consisting of DNA, protein, and RNA.
In cell biology, chromosome territories are regions of the nucleus preferentially occupied by particular chromosomes.
The circuit topology of a linear polymer refers to arrangement of its intra-molecular contacts.
Erez Lieberman Aiden (born 1980), formerly known as Erez Lieberman, is an American research scientist active in multiple fields related to applied mathematics.
Gene deserts are regions of the genome that are devoid of protein-coding genes.
In molecular biology, genome architecture mapping (GAM) is a cryosectioning method to map colocalized DNA regions in a ligation independent manner.
Hi-C may refer to.
Nuclear organization refers to the spatial distribution of chromatin within a cell nucleus.
Paired-end tags (PET) (sometimes "Paired-End diTags", or simply "ditags") are the short sequences at the 5’ and 3’ ends of a DNA fragment which are unique enough that they (theoretically) exist together only once in a genome, therefore making the sequence of the DNA in between them available upon search (if full-genome sequence data is available) or upon further sequencing (since tag sites are unique enough to serve as primer annealing sites).
The Polycomb-group proteins (PcGs) are a family of proteins that use epigenetic mechanisms to maintain or repress expression of their target genes.
Single cell epigenomics is the study of epigenomics (the complete set of epigenetic modifications on the genetic material of a cell) in individual cells by single cell sequencing.
A topologically associating domain (TAD) is a self-interacting genomic region, meaning that DNA sequences within a TAD physically interact with each other more frequently than with sequences outside the TAD.
In genetics, transcription factories describe the discrete sites where transcription occurs in the nucleus.
The University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) is one of five campuses of the University of Massachusetts (UMass) system.
3C may refer to: In astronomy.
