ChIP-Seq is used to analyze protein interactions with DNA in order to identify specific binding sites of DNA-associated proteins.
To prepare for sequencing, our lab provides library preparation by converting the ChIP samples to a sequencing library.
|Library Preparation Type||Input Material||Min. Amount||Volume||Dilution Buffer|
||ChIP DNA||20 ng||< 50 ul||H2O, or 10 mM Tris-Cl, pH 8.5|
*Amplicons will be accepted only following DNA purification.
Sample quality requirements:
Please note that the user is responsible for the quality of each sample. Genomic DNA should be intact. Please contact the Lab to coordinate suitable sample prep if your DNA sample is degraded. RNA integrity must be confirmed using the Agilent Bioanalyzer, TapeStation, or a similar instrument, or by running the sample on an agarose gel.
- Sample purity:
OD260/280 = 1.8-2.2
OD260/230 ≥ 2.0
The preliminary analysis from raw datafiles is performed on various platforms such as the Partek Genomics Suite. Further analysis of differentially expressed gene-lists function and pathways is performed using various updated web-based tools. The analysis is generally done on a collaborative basis.
