Chrom3D: a scalable whole-genome 3D modeling framework

Chrom3D: three-dimensional genome modeling from Hi-C and nuclear lamin-genome contacts. Genome Biology. 2017. 18:21. Abstract Current 3-dimensional (3D) genome modeling platforms are limited by their inability to account for radial placement of loci in the nucleus. We present Chrom3D, a user-friendly whole-genome 3D computational modeling framework that simulates positions of topologically-associated domains (TADs) relative to…
