Nature Biotech publication Ido Amit

26 July 2016
In the July issue of Nature Biotechnology, a paper from Ido Amit and his team from the Weizmann Institute of Science was released. The publication, entitled "Co-ChIP enables genome-wide mapping of histone mark co-occurence at single moleculare resolution" describes how co-ChIP for probing the interactions between histone marks in a genome-wide manner was developed. Co-ChIP can be applied to profile the co-occurrence of dozens of different histone PTM combinations.
The expectation is that co-ChIP can be used to better understand the structure and function of the genome in both health and disease.
