Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) coupled with next-generation sequencing (NGS) is widely used for studying the nucleoprotein components that are involved in the various cellular processes required for shaping the bacterial nucleoid. This methodology, termed ChIP-sequencing (ChIP-seq), enables the identification of the DNA targets of DNA binding proteins across genome-wide maps. Here, we describe the steps necessary to obtain short, specific, high-quality immunoprecipitated DNA prior to DNA library construction for NGS and high-resolution ChIP-seq data.
