Dovetail Genomics Micro-C, HiChIP Kits

Dovetail Genomics has launched the Dovetail Micro-C and HiChIP Kits. The Micro-C Kit is the latest offering in the company's suite of Hi-C products, offering researchers resolution of chromatin contacts down to the mono-nucleosome level. The Dovetail HiChIP combines Micro-C and ChIP-seq into one simple workflow that enables researchers to assay protein-directed alterations to chromatin architecture and its resulting impact on gene expression, the company said. Both products are made for short-read next-generation sequencing platforms.
