Single-cell Visualization of Chromosome Transcriptional Territories by RNA-paint
Authors:  Céline Vallot and Claire Rougeulle, date: 09/05/2016, view: 2694, Q&A: 0
We developed a FISH-based method to directly assess chromosome-wide transcriptional activity, thereby enabling the visualization of the actively transcribed fraction of a chromosome at the single-cell level. We applied this method to probe the ...
