This Week in PLoS

In PLoS Biology this week, investigators in Belgium present cisTargetX, a new computational method "that predicts transcription factor binding motifs and their target genes through the integration of gene expression data and comparative genomics." Using three Drosophila species, the team first validated their method in silico; their subsequent perturbations of predicted neurogenesis transcription factors and gene-expression analyses via microarrays, showed
