  5. Epigenetics


It’s the next step beyond the genome, answering not only what controls coding DNA, but also finding a true role for much so-called "junk" DNA. This complex regulatory network is demonstrating its crucial role in controlling genetic and environmental regulation of gene expression. Researchers are discovering epigenetics as a key factor in development and growth, as well as in nearly every class of disease.

Through its electrophoresis, next-generation sequencing, and real-time PCR tools, Applied Biosystems can help you keep up with this fast-moving field, from analyzing methylation, identifying new nucleotide sequences with chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing (ChIP-Seq), and more.
