Title: Pach-ing It in: The Peculiar Organization of Mammalian Pachytene Chromosomes.

Authors: Jung, Yoon Hee; Corces, Victor G

Published In Mol Cell, (2019 02 07)

Abstract: In this issue of Molecular Cell, Wang et al. (2019) use Hi-C to visualize at high resolution the complex reprogramming of chromatin architecture during spermatogenesis in rhesus monkeys and mice. They find that pachytene spermatocytes have a unique chromosome organization that may result from the presence of the synaptonemal complex and transcription-associated proteins.
