'Insulator' helps silence genes in dormant herpes virus

...nearby regions of the genome contain modifications indicative of silenced chromatin. The patterns found resemble well-studied regions where insulators are found in both yeast and chicken, namely the yeast mating loci and chicken globin locus. To see if insulators play a role in silencing viral genes during th...
