Flow cytometry, in combination with advances in bead coding technologies, is maturing as a powerful high-throughput approach for analyzing molecular interactions. Applications of this technology include antibody assays and single nucleotide polymorphism mapping. This review describes the recent development of a microbead flow cytometric approach to analyze RNA-protein interactions and discusses emerging bead coding strategies that together will allow genome-wide identification of RNA-protein complexes. The microbead flow cytometric approach is flexible and provides new opportunities for functional genomic studies and small-molecule screening.
