Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) followed by next-generation sequencing is a powerful technique that characterizes the genome-wide DNA-binding profile of a protein of interest. The general ChIP-seq workflow has been applied widely to many sample types and target proteins, but sample-specific optimization of various steps is necessary to achieve high-quality data. This protocol is specifically optimized for cultured human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), including steps to check sample quali…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
