This Week in PNAS

Washington State University researchers put together a map of ultraviolet light-induced damage across a yeast eukaryotic genome. Using an approach called cyclobutane pyrimidine dimer sequencing, or CPD-sequencing, the team tracked the formation of such dimers following UV exposure at the single nucleotide level over the genome, in relation to the broader nucleosome patterns and chromosomal landscape.
