Publication Alert!

Sometimes we have a hard time figuring out where in the genome transcription factors prefer to bind. Cheeky little fellows. Our esteemed Hemangi Chaudhari was not having it. She took up her mighty pipette and worked to figure out what features reside in the flanking regions of TF binding sites that might define either high or low expression. Check out her publication that just came out in Genome Research, titled “Local sequence features that influence AP-1 cis-regulatory activity”. Great job, Hemangi!!
