  User Instructions
Gene expression – NimbleGen microarrays enable accurate, sensitive, and specific interrogation of genome-wide expression for any sequenced and annotated genome. Sequence Capture – a revolutionary process for the enrichment of selected genomic regions from full complexity human genomic DNA in a single step. CGH/CNV – Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) measures DNA copy number differences between a test and reference genome. ChIP-chip – Chromatin Immunoprecipitation-on-chip is a powerful tool to map chromatin structure and DNA binding sites of transcription factors and polymerases. DNA Methylation – NimbleGen provides the most sensitive and specific DNA Methylation microarrays on the market. CGS – Comparative Genome Sequencing (CGS) rapidly surveys entire microbial genomes, identifying SNPs, insertions, or deletions and then fully characterizing them by array sequencing with unrivaled speed and accuracy.
