Creating 'genomic origami' - Harvard Gazette

Creating 'genomic origami' - Harvard Gazette | BS2040: Bioinformatics | Scoop.it
Researchers have assembled the first high-resolution, 3-D maps of entire folded genomes and found a structural basis for gene regulation, a kind of “genomic origami” that allows the same genome to produce different types of cells.
Dr Richard Badge's insight:

The original 2009 paper is still a favourite, but excited to see the advances made here!
