We are pleased to share with you the news that EPFL enable will support the project TLC, aiming at showcasing the potential of TLC through proof-of-concept…
TLC Library Preparation
The generation of double-stranded cDNA is a crucial step during NGS library preparation from RNA. Tailing and ligation of cDNA -TLC- presents a novel approach to generate full-length cDNA molecules, offering an alternative to template switch oligos. This work will showcase the potential of TLC throu…

Phase separation in viral infections
Viruses rely on the reprogramming of cellular processes to enable efficient viral
replication; this often requires subcompartmentalization within the host cell. Liquid–liquid
phase separation (LLPS) has emerged as a fundamental principle to organize and subdivide
cellular processes, and plays an imp…

“🚨 Paper Alert! 🚨
Interested in an easy and reproducible method to measure RNA-protein interactions? Here is some TLC for CLIP! https://t.co/bm8ITyhtzS @ErnstLab_ @epflSV @snsf_ch @HFSP @biorxivpreprint #RNAbindingProteins #RNA #Ambizione #SNSF_Research A thread🧵👇”
Efficient and sensitive profiling of RNA-protein interactions using TLC-CLIP
RNA-binding proteins are instrumental for post-transcriptional gene regulation, yet transcriptome-wide methods to profile RNA-protein interactions remain technically challenging. We present an improved library preparation strategy for cross-linking and immunoprecipitation (CLIP) that involves tailin…
