Genomic tools for dissecting oncogenic transcriptional networks in human leukemia

Leukemia. 2009 Jul;23(7):1236-42. doi: 10.1038/leu.2008.394. Epub 2009 Jan 22.


Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP)-chip and ChIP-seq technologies are rapidly expanding our capacity to interrogate the location of transcription factor-binding sites in the human genome and to map the pattern of chromatin modifications associated with the regulation of gene expression. The application of these techniques to the study of hematologic malignancies will complement gene expression profiling studies to elucidate the structure and function of oncogenic transcriptional networks involved in the pathogenesis of leukemias and lymphomas.
