ChIP-Seq

ChIP-seq represents a combination of two techniques, namely chromatin immuno-precipitation and high-throughput sequencing. This method for the identification and mapping of human DNA sequences that are bound by specific protein factor in vivo i.e. allows for a global location analysis for binding sites of a given histone mark (such as the enhancer mark H3k27ac), transcription factor or another DNA-binding factor.
