structural biology Qiagen, Phase Genomics Ink US Licensing Agreement for Hi-C Sequencing Technology Qiagen can now sell Phase's proprietary proximity-ligation technology for chromatin conformational analysis research in the US. New Method Captures Higher-Order Chromatin Contacts With Nanopore Sequencing Premium Unlike the Hi-C chromosome conformation assay, the Pore-C technique reveals information that's lost with short-read sequencing. DNAStar Names Inqaba Biotec as Distributor for Africa Inqaba will distribute DNAStar's Lasergene software suite for DNA, RNA, and protein sequence analysis in Africa. Optical Approach Used to Visualize DNA Folding During Drosophila Development Through this analysis, the researchers uncovered borders between active and repressed chromatin that varied by cell type. Chromatin Structure Less Organized Than Textbooks Say, According to New Study A Salk Institute-led team developed an approach to visualize chromatin in vivo and used it to examine the organization of DNA in interphase and mitotic cells.
