Scientists from South Carolina and Mainz, Germany, studied Hop, a co-chaperone that interacts with a piRNA in Drosophila. They found that knocking down Hop activates transposons and that it has an important role in maintaining genome integrity. RNA-seq was performed on an Illumina HiSeq 2500 after Pippin Prep was used for size selection.
