Method P.1 right column botom paragraph: "[Researchers] [ref 10] and others [refs 11,12] developed genomic variants of the well-known run-on technique [ref 13] to evaluate the nascent TR (transcription rate) for most genes. In this technique (GRO, Genomic Run-on), elongating RNA pol molecules, that conserve the RNA, are forced to incorporate radioactive UTP for a short length."
