Our review on lamina-associated domains (LADs) is out in Genome Biology

Lamina-associated domains: peripheral matters and internal affairs. Briand N, Collas P. Genome Biol. 2020 Apr 2;21(1):85. doi: 10.1186/s13059-020-02003-5. At the nuclear periphery, associations of chromatin with the nuclear lamina through lamina-associated domains (LADs) aid functional organization of the genome. We review the organization of LADs and provide evidence of LAD heterogeneity from cell ensemble and single-cell…

Cliques of topologically associating domains (TADs) form repressed chromatin domains towards the nuclear periphery

Nat Genet. 2019 May;51(5):835-843. doi: 10.1038/s41588-019-0392-0. Long-range interactions between topologically associating domains shape the 4-dimensional genome during differentiation Jonas Paulsen, Tharvesh M. Liyakat Ali, Maxim Nekrasov, Erwan Delbarre, Marie-Odile Baudement, Sebastian Kurscheid, David Tremethick and Philippe Collas A collaboration between the University of Oslo (Collas) and The Australian National University (Tremethick) Genomic information is selectively…
