1.  Automated analysis of embryonic gene expression with cellular resolution in C. elegans 
Nature methods  2008;5(8):703-709.
We describe a system that permits the automated analysis of reporter gene expression in Caenorhabditis elegans with cellular resolution continuously during embryogenesis and demonstrate its utility by defining the expression patterns of reporters for several embryonically expressed transcription factors. The invariant cell lineage permits the automated alignment of multiple expression profiles, allowing the direct comparison of the expression of different genes' reporters. We have also used the system to monitor perturbations to normal development involving changes both in cell division timing and in cell fate. Systematic application could reveal the gene activity of each cell throughout development.

2.  Genomic mapping of single-stranded DNA in hydroxyurea-challenged yeasts identifies origins of replication 
Nature cell biology  2006;8(2):148-155.
We report a genome-wide analysis of single-stranded DNA formation during DNA replication in wild type and checkpoint-deficient rad53 yeast cells in the presence of hydroxyurea. In wild type cells, ssDNA first appears at a subset of replication origins and later “migrates” bi-directionally, suggesting that ssDNA formation is associated with continuously moving replication forks. In rad53 cells, ssDNA appears at virtually every known origin, but remains there over time, suggesting that replication forks stall. Telomeric regions appear to be especially sensitive to the loss of Rad53 checkpoint function. We also mapped replication origins in Schizosaccharomyces pombe using our method.
