ChIP-Seq sample prep tip – Interpreting the apparent presence of a secondary band in size-selected DNA

ChIP-Seq analysis is used to study the control of gene expression by identifying DNA regions that are associated  with chromatin at the time of cellular analysis. The ChIP-Seq procedure typically involves cross-linking DNA to the associated chromatin proteins, sonication to … more »
