Character-State Reconstruction to Infer Ancestral Protein-Protein Interaction Patterns
Authors:  Florian Rümpler, Günter Theißen and Rainer Melzer, date: 08/20/2015, view: 5935, Q&A: 0
Protein-protein interactions are at the core of a plethora of developmental, physiological and biochemical processes. Consequently, insights into the origin and evolutionary dynamics of protein-protein interactions may provide information on the ...

Heterologous Expression and Purification of the CRISPR-Cas12a/Cpf1 Protein
Authors:  Prarthana Mohanraju, John van der Oost, Martin Jinek and Daan C. Swarts, date: 05/05/2018, view: 1926, Q&A: 3
This protocol provides step by step instructions (Figure 1) for heterologous expression of Francisella novicida Cas12a (previously known as Cpf1) in Escherichia coli. It additionally includes a protocol for high-purity purification ...

Chromosome Dosage Analysis in Plants Using Whole Genome Sequencing
Authors:  Ek Han Tan, Luca Comai and Isabelle M. Henry, date: 07/05/2016, view: 4832, Q&A: 0
Relative chromosome dosage, i.e., increases or decreases in the number of copies of specific chromosome regions in one sample versus another, can be determined using aligned read-counts from Illumina sequencing (Henry et al. ...

Tethered Chromosome Conformation Capture Sequencing in Triticeae: A Valuable Tool for Genome Assembly
Authors:  Axel Himmelbach, Ines Walde, Martin Mascher and Nils Stein, date: 08/05/2018, view: 647, Q&A: 0
Chromosome conformation capture sequencing (Hi-C) is a powerful method to comprehensively interrogate the three-dimensional positioning of chromatin in the nucleus. The development of Hi-C can be traced back to successive increases in the resolution ...

High Resolution Melting Temperature Analysis to Identify CRISPR/Cas9 Mutants from Arabidopsis
Authors:  Cynthia Denbow, Sonia Carole Ehivet and Sakiko Okumoto, date: 07/20/2018, view: 631, Q&A: 0
CRISPR/Cas9 made targeted mutagenesis and genome editing possible for many plant species. One of the ways that the endonuclease is used for plant genetics is the creation of loss-of-function mutants, which typically result from erroneous DNA repair ...
