Chromatin Immunoprecipitation sequencing (ChIP-Seq) is a technique which combines chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) with NGS for identifying Genome-wide DNA binding sites for transcription factors and other proteins.
It could be used to determine how transcription factors and other chromatin-related proteins affect phenotypic mechanisms.
Determining how proteins interact with DNA to regulate gene expression is essential to investigate biological processes and disease states.
ChIP-Sequencing has played important roles in applications, including studies on gene regulation, transcription complex assembly, DNA repair, histone modification,
developmental mechanisms, disease progression and modifications.
