PAR-CLIP is a new technique for transcriptome-wide mapping of binding sites for RNA-binding proteins. In this technique, a photoactivatable nucleoside is incorporated into RNA and crosslinked to proteins in vivo with UV light. The crosslinked nucleoside causes a specific base change during processing for deep sequencing, allowing the precise identification of binding sites.
