NimbleGen Tiling Arrays

Drosophila RNA Expression Tiling Array (Henikoff project, Ahmad subgroup)

General Description

Drosophila melanogaster Kc167 cells were H2Av RNAi treated and collected for RNA expression tiling arrays. poly A+ RNA was isolated and used to synthesize single-stranded cDNA probes. Labeled cDNA and labeled genomic DNA were hybridized to NimbleGen microarrays (2-color hybridizations). The hybridization signal was compared between genomic DNA and cDNA.  Scaled log2(ratios) of signal intensity are shown.These experiments are used as controls for nucleosome salt fractionations.
