Riken Team Uses Heliscope to Analyze Transcription in FANTOM5 Project | GenomeWeb

By Monica Heger

Researchers at the Riken Omics Science Center in Japan reported recently on a sequencing technique to analyze gene expression on the Heliscope, and are currently using the method on the center's four HeliScope machines in the Functional Annotation of the Mammalian Genome, or FANTOM5, project.

The goal of FANTOM5 is to map the transcription start sites of every human cell type in order to piece together transcriptional networks.
