Loss of transcription factor alters chromatin accessibility

Researchers have discovered that chromatin accessibility is heavily influenced by a key transcription factor that is linked to cancer. The […]

TAD cliques predict chromatin organisation features

A recent paper, released as preprint in biorxiv, has explored long-range interaction patterns and identified TAD cliques that can predict […]

Heterochromatin-dependent processes contribute to fungal resistance

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh have identified how fungal resistance to drugs develops. Originally, researchers thought that only mutations […]
