When less is more: A promising approach for low-cell-number epigenomic profiling

Scientists at Kyushu University and Tokyo Tech in Japan have developed a technique that enables analysis of DNA–protein interactions using very small numbers of cells, ranging from 100 to 1,000. Their method could capture previously unexamined epigenomic information, facilitate biomarker discovery and open new avenues for precision medicine.
