Re: what is the purpose of ChIP experiment?

... to develop medication to try and block these gene networks. Knowledge of protein binding sites in DNA is useful for numerous other reasons. Mapping and quantifying gene regulatory networks (the networks of genes affecting the expression of other genes) is also important in metabolic engineering, ...
