In a paper published in the early online edition of Technology, a group led by Elliott Margulies, Ph.D., of the National Human Genome Analysis Institute , and Thomas Tullius, Ph.D., of Boston University, described an innovative approach for detecting practical genomic regions. By combining computer and chemical analyses, the researchers can easily survey the scenery, or topography, of DNA structure for areas more likely to play a key role in biological function.
