Mapping the strand-specific transcriptome of fission yeast

Pervasive genome-wide transcription is widespread in eukaryotic cells, but key features of the transcriptome have yet to be fully characterized. A new study using antibody-based detection of RNA-DNA duplexes on tiling arrays now reveals a complex, strand-specific transcriptional world in fission yeast.
