• 'Bespoke' analysis of DNA packaging sheds light on intricacies of the fundamental process

    9 days ago - By Phys

    Researchers from Skoltech and their colleagues have optimized data analysis for a common method of studying the 3-D structure of DNA in single cells of a Drosophila fly. The new approach allows the scientists to peek with greater confidence into individual cells to study the unique ways DNA is packaged there and to get closer to understanding the underlying mechanisms of this crucial process. The paper was published in the journal Nature Communications.
