New method reveals principles of chromatin folding in vivo

Characterizing chromosome structure is fundamental to a better understanding of gene expression. Current experimental methods helped to build mechanistic models of chromosome folding, however they could not be formally validated so far by independent techniques. This is what the Giorgetti group just did – thanks to a new method they developed to measure chromosome structure quantitatively in living cells. Read more
