An article published in issue 7670 of Nature reviews a suite of tools allowing researchers to chart the complex conformations of chromosomes. The article features TADkit, a package developed at the CNAG-CRG by Marc Marti-Renom and Mike Goodstadt designed specifically to model chromatin structure....
