Researchers generate first complete 3-D structures of bacterial chromosome

ome inside of the cell." said Esteban Toro, PhD, one of the study authors and now a post doctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. "These results suggest that the parS site in Caulobacter crescentus determines the orientation and global structure of the entire chromosome and are the only sequence elements that stably anchor the chromosome to the cell."

The ability for scientists to perform structure function studies on chromosomes has the potential to yield powerful new insights into the biology of genomes. "When we began this project, most scientists were assessing the positions of a handful of genomic loci and attempting to derive general conclusions about genome structure. We were unhappy with this approach and sought to develop an integrated experimental approach to generate higher-resolution, and genome-wide insights," Umbarger said.

"This isn't something we could have predicted from just looking at the DNA sequence," said Dekker. "This study illustrates how an investigation of 3D genomic structure can provide insights into how the complex relationships between genome sequence and structure can impact function. By studying genomic architecture we can potentially identify new classes of genomic sequences that are important in chromosome function and structure that we otherwise couldn't."
