Transcription is a highly dynamic process that generates single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) in the genome as ‘transcription bubbles’. Here we describe a kethoxal-assisted single-stranded DNA sequencing (KAS-seq) approach, based on the fast and specific reaction between N 3 -kethoxal and guanines in ssDNA. KAS-seq allows rapid (within 5 min), sensitive and genome-wide capture and mapping of ssDNA produced by transcriptionally active RNA polymerases or other processes in situ using as few as 1,000 cells… Expand
A nuclease- and bisulfite-based strategy captures strand-specific R-loops genome-wide
TLDR
BisMapR reveals a previously unnoticed feature of active enhancers and provides a tool to systematically examine their mechanisms in gene expression and achieves greater resolution and is faster than existing strand-specific R-loop profiling strategies. Expand
Ligand-induced native G-quadruplex stabilization impairs transcription initiation.
TLDR
A reciprocal genome-wide regulation between native G4 dynamics and gene transcription is revealed, which will deepen the understanding of G4 biology toward therapeutically targeting G4s in human diseases. Expand

TLDR
The use of Cleavage Under Targets and Tagmentation (CUT&Tag) for mapping native G4 in mammalian cell lines at high resolution and low background and demonstrates the genome-wide co-occurence of single-stranded DNA, G4s and R loops, suggesting an intricate relationship between transcription and non-canonical DNA structures.

Chromophore-assisted proximity labeling of DNA reveals chromosomal organization in living cells.
TLDR
A novel proximity-dependent DNA labeling method based on the chromophore-assisted nucleobase photooxidation that achieves blue light-activated labeling of local DNA with a bioorthogonal functional handle and is generally applicable for the genome-wide high-resolution mapping of the spatial chromosome organization in living cells.

Non-B DNA: a major contributor to small- and large-scale variation in nucleotide substitution frequencies across the genome
TLDR
A comprehensive analysis of nucleotide substitution frequencies at non-B DNA loci within noncoding, non-repetitive genome regions, their ±2 kb flanking regions, and 1-Megabase windows, using human-orangutan divergence and human single-nucleotide polymorphisms highlights the role of non- B DNA in germline mutagenesis with implications to evolution and genetic diseases.

The chromatin organization of a chlorarachniophyte nucleomorph genome
TLDR
This work finds that the B. natans nucleomorph genome exists in a highly accessible state, akin to that of ribosomal DNA in some other eukaryotes, and that it is highly transcribed over its entire length, with few signs of polymerase pausing at transcription start sites (TSSs). Expand
Deep learning approach for predicting functional Z-DNA regions using omics data
TLDR
A machine learning approach DeepZ is developed that aggregates information from genome-wide maps of epigenetic markers, transcription factor and RNA polymerase binding sites, and chromosome accessibility maps and generates the whole-genome annotation, introducing new possible Z-DNA regions which have not yet been found in experiments and can be of interest to the researchers from various fields.
