A Beginner's Guide to ChIP Webinar

Review this powerful technique, get advice on selecting antibodies, and learn troubleshooting techniques with our Epigenetic specialist

ChIP is a very powerful technique that allows for the analysis of protein localization on DNA regions in the genome. Selective enrichment of a chromatin fraction using antibodies allows for the isolation of DNA regions and interacting proteins.
