A genome-wide deletion library is a powerful tool for probing gene functions and one has recently become available for the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. Here we use deep sequencing to accurately characterize the barcode sequences in the deletion library, thus enabling the quantitative measurement of the fitness of fission yeast deletion strains(More)
Spontaneous DNA damage may occur nonrandomly in the genome, especially when genome maintenance mechanisms are undermined. We developed single-strand DNA (ssDNA)-associated protein immunoprecipitation followed by sequencing (SPI-seq) to map genomic hotspots of DNA damage. We demonstrated this method with Rad52, a homologous recombination repair protein,(More)
