A New High-Throughput Sequencing-Based Technology to Study Heterochromatin Structure
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
In this study we report epigenomic and transcriptomics datasets for normal control fibroblasts. The following cell lines were obtained from the NIGMS Human Genetic Cell Repository at the Coriell Institute for Medical Research: AG08498, AG07095, originally collected as part of the NIA Aging Cell Repository study.
We applied a high-throughput sequencing-based technique, named Sequential Analysis of MacroMolecules accessibilitY (SAMMY-seq), for the genome-wide mapping of chromatin regions separated by differential accessibility. The method is based on the sequential extraction of multiple chromatin fractions, corresponding to increasingly compacted and less accessible chromatin regions, which are mapped along the genome using high-throughput sequencing. Additionally we carried out ChIP-seq for the H3K9me3 and H3K27me3 histone modifications and RNA-seq for the characterization of transcriptome in control fibroblasts.
