We have developed comprehensive, unbiased genome-wide screens to understand gene-drug and gene-environment interactions. Methods for screening these mutant collections are presented.

Genome-wide screening in human and mouse cells using RNA interference and open reading frame over-expression libraries is rapidly becoming a viable experimental approach for many research labs. There are a variety of gene expression modulation libraries commercially available, however, detailed and validated protocols as well as the reagents necessary for deconvolving genome-scale gene screens using these libraries are lacking. As a solution, we designed a comprehensive platform for highly multiplexed functional genetic screens in human, mouse and yeast cells using popular, commercially available gene modulation libraries. The Gene Modulation Array Platform (GMAP) is a single microarray-based detection solution for deconvolution of loss and gain-of-function pooled screens.

The basic unit of chromatin is double-stranded DNA wrapped around nucleosome core particles, the -classic "beads-on-a-string" described by Kornberg and colleagues. The history of chromatin studies has experienced many peaks, from the earliest studies by Miescher to the biochemical studies of the 1960s and 1970s, the appreciation for the influence of histone modifications in controlling gene expression in the 1990s to the genome-wide studies that began in 2006 and show no signs of abating with the introduction of next generation sequencing technologies. Genome-wide studies not only have provided a base line to understand relationships between chromatin structure and gene function but also have begun to provide new insights into chromatin remodelling. Here, we describe the use of genome-wide approaches to determining nucleosome occupancy in yeast.
