The National Institutes of Health this week put out a call for input on a priority list for renewable affinity reagents for human transcription factors.
The outreach is part of the NIIH's Protein Capture Reagents Program, which is intended to determine if a source of high-quality, renewable affinity reagents can be generated and validated for all human proteins and to build technologies for doing so.
As a test case, the program seeks to generate affinity reagents against all human transcription factors.
The program's Target List working group has identified a list of targets to begin production of affinity reagents against and is now seeking input from researchers about the list and assistance in validation of these reagents for a variety of applications and CHiP-seq in particular.
Comments can be contributed through Oct. 31, and can be made here.
