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.
