Milestone: Pulling down answers to biological mysteries with ChIP

Through many innovations over the past 40 years, ChIP rapidly evolved to become a powerful tool for understanding the epigenome.

Scientists developed chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) as a tool to understand the epigenome. The technique has rapidly evolved to become faster, higher-throughput, and offer real-time epigenetic data for health and disease. 

Explore this milestone article from Drug Discovery News to learn how researchers developed ChIP and have used it to understand the relationships between proteins, DNA, and RNA as they relate to gene expression.
