Characterizing Transcription Factor Binding in Yeast

by Olivia Muly
When an organism is exposed to different environmental challenges, it begins to upregulate certain genes relevant to its survival and downregulate others. The proteins responsible for these changes are called transcription factors. These proteins bind regulatory elements in the genome and influence the transcription of their associated genes. Utilizing the technique "Chromatin Immunoprecipitation-exonuclease", the location of these binding events can be determined to near base-pair resolution.
