Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) followed by next generation sequencing (ChIP-Seq) is a powerful technique to study transcriptional regulation. However, the requirement of millions of cells to generate results with high signal-to-noise ratio precludes it in the study of small cell populations. Here, we present a Tagmentation-Assisted Fragmentation ChIP (TAF-ChIP) and sequencing method to generate high-quality histone profiles from low cell numbers. The data obtained from the TAF-ChIP approach is amenable to standard tools for ChIP-Seq analysis, owing to its high signal-to-noise ratio. The epigenetic profiles from TAF-ChIP approach showed high agreement with conventional ChIP-Seq datasets, thereby underlining the utility of this approach.
