Next Generation Sequencing Interest Group - ATAC-Seq: a first glimpse into chromatin states

Chromatin accessibility is an essential component of gene regulation of biological processes in specific cells. Assay for Transposase Accessible Chromatin with high-throughput sequencing (ATAC-seq) is an effective way to probe for chromatin accessibility at a genome-wide level and has become a powerful tool to understand dynamic gene expression regulation. In this talk, I will summarize both principle and features of ATAC-seq, and highlight its applications in basic and clinical research
