Synthetic genome readers target clustered binding sites across diverse chromatin states [Biochemistry]

Targeting the genome with sequence-specific DNA-binding molecules is a major goal at the interface of chemistry, biology, and precision medicine. Polyamides, composed of N-methylpyrrole and N-methylimidazole monomers, are a class of synthetic molecules that can be rationally designed to “read” specific DNA sequences. However, the impact of different chromatin states...
