Identifying the genomic regions bound by sequence-specific regulatory factors is central both to deciphering the complex DNA cis-regulatory code that controls transcription in metazoans and to determining the range of genes that shape animal morphogenesis. We used whole-genome tiling arrays to map sequences bound in Drosophila melanogaster embryos by the… (More)
Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been the focus of much attention in human genetics because they are extremely abundant and well-suited for automated large-scale genotyping. Human SNPs, however, are less informative than other types of genetic markers (such as simple-sequence length polymorphisms or microsatellites) and thus more loci are… (More)
The 5'-end attachment of oligonucleotides to dextran supports facilitates the study of the hybridization properties of an immobilized oligonucleotide system. The hybridization properties which were studied include: hybridization capacity and kinetics, hybridization-complex stability, and reagents influencing hybridization efficiency. Results of these… (More)
(2008) Transcription factors bind thousands of active and inactive regions in the Drosophila blastoderm. PLoS Biol 6(2): e27. The information in Table 1 for RNA polymerase II was incorrectly given for the form of the enzyme unphosphorylated at the C-terminal tail, which is recognized by the 8WG16 monoclonal antibody. The corrected version of the Table below… (More)
A collection of computer programs is described which permit automatic entering of nucleotide sequence data directly from an autoradiograph into a computer. This collection, called DIGITPAD, makes use of a digitizing tablet for the data entry and allows the rapid and accurate transfer of the sequence into the computer.
