DNA's shape controls genes

from Garvan Institute via ScienceAlert

Scientists from Australia and the United States bring new insights to our understanding of the 3-D structure of the genome, one of the biggest challenges currently facing the fields of genomics and genetics. Their findings are published in Nature Genetics online. Roughly 3 meters of DNA is tightly folded into the nucleus of every cell in our body. This folding allows some genes to be "expressed," or activated, while excluding others. more
