DNA wraps around histones to form the nucleosome, the basic chromatin unit. Tightly packed heterochromatin forms structures such as telomeres and centromeres, whereas euchromatin features active genes. Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) is a popular application in the field and emerging techniques include 3C and derivatives. We provide antibodies and kits for chromatin extraction and ChIP.
