Breaking the Resolution Barrier: New Workflows Defining Chromatin Architecture at the Nucleosome Level

From the creators of the Dovetail HiChIP and Micro-C assays respectively, Marco Blanchette (VP R&D) and Lisa Munding (Lead Scientist) will share their experiences and impetus for developing these game-changing assay kits for epigenetic research. Details on the how the kits work, their benefits and the ways they see these new technologies impacting genomic research will be shared.


Non-targeted Genome Topology

Capture the full breadth of chromatin topology with a genome wide approach producing the most extensive view of 3D chromatin architecture.

E-P Interactions

Interested in enhancer-promoter interactions. Reduce your sequencing cost and boost your signal-to-noise by focusing just those interactions occurring at known gene promoters using Dovetail’s purpose-built hybrid capture pan promoter panel.

Hybrid Capture Compatible

Want to customize your focus? Dovetail® Micro-C libraries are compatible with standard and custom hybrid capture panels from other sources.

The Benefits of Using The Micro-C Kit

The MNase Advantage
The Dovetail Micro-C Kit uses micrococcal nuclease (MNase) to generate highly uniform fragments that uniquely capture nucleosome positioning information while still maintaining an even coverage across the genome. The benefit is increased mapping resolution aligned with the unit of chromatin, that is, the nucleosome.

Unlock the 3D genome architecture at the nucleosome level and start discovering the epigenetic answers you’ve been looking for.
Reduce Sequencing Burden
The ability to detect higher-order features, such as chromatin loops, in proximity ligation data is dependent on enriching long-range informative reads to capture chromatin interaction frequency. The Dovetail Micro-C Kit only requires 800 M reads to get 1 kb matrices compared to the 1.2-1.6 billion reads required by restriction enzyme-based Hi-C methods. Translation? Significant sequencing savings for you.

Customer Testimonials
