Design to detect transcription factor specificity

Thanks, thats brilliant. I was looking into the hybridisation with the tagged TF which seems like it would work. Also with the chip will it be appropriate for bacteria? I just got a little confused as bacteria do not have chromatin? Thanks

Improving hybridisation signal by removing cytoplasm

Hello everybody over the years we have had persistent & frustrating problems with cytoplasm and its affect on hybridisation FISH probes. Its become clear to me that pre-treatment to remove cytoplasm from samples is key to enable efficient and successful hybridisation of the ...
