Manuscript describing our genome-wide Topoisomerase cleavage assay published

Our collaborative study where we and the Felix lab developed a high-throughput sequencing-based approach for mapping TOP2A cleavage on a genome-wide scale is now online at Genome Research. This was a true labor of love to get this study to completion, but I could not be happier to have this assay finally published!

Congrats to Xiang and James for getting this study passed the finish line!
