Functional implications of genome topology
TLDR
The emerging picture is one of extensive self-enforcing feedback between activity and spatial organization of the genome, suggestive of a self-organizing and self-perpetuating system that uses epigenetic dynamics to regulate genome function in response to regulatory cues and to propagate cell-fate memory.

TLDR
Mutations and transcriptional misregulation of several global genome organizers are linked to human diseases and global alterations in chromatin structure are emerging as key players in maintenance of genome stability, aging, and the formation of cancer translocations.
Three-dimensional organization and dynamics of the genome
TLDR
In this review, the current view of the genome architecture on the scales ranging from chromatin loops to the whole genome is summarized and links between genome reorganization and various genomic processes, such as chromosome X inactivation and cell differentiation, are described.
Hierarchies in eukaryotic genome organization: Insights from polymer theory and simulations
TLDR
Results are reviewed and some additional insights are provided that elucidate the relationship between structure and function at different hierarchical levels of genome organization.
Understanding Spatial Genome Organization: Methods and Insights
Molecular Cell Review The Hierarchy of the 3 D Genome
TLDR
The experimental and theoretical data on this hierarchy of structures and a key role for the recently discovered topologically associating domains are reviewed and proposed.
Dynamics and interplay of nuclear architecture, genome organization, and gene expression.
TLDR
Recent studies that have provided exciting insight into the interplay between nuclear architecture, genome organization, and gene expression are discussed.
Long-Range Chromatin Interactions.
TLDR
The nature of long interactions, mechanisms of their formation, and their emerging functional roles in gene regulation and genome maintenance are discussed.

Predicting three-dimensional genome structure from transcriptional activity
TLDR
A model for the three-dimensional structure of all genomes is presented, based on the structure of the bacterial nucleoid, where RNA polymerases cluster and loop the DNA, to predict how genomes are folded in the cell from the primary DNA sequence.

As the relationship between nuclear structure and function begins to unfold, a picture is emerging of a dynamic landscape that is centred on the two main processes that execute the regulated use and
Gene Order and Dynamic Domains
TLDR
Contrary to prevailing notions in this postgenomic era, the bacteriophage λ, a paragon of simplicity, may still have a few things to teach us with respect to these facets of nonrandom genomes.
Nuclear Organization of Mammalian Genomes
TLDR
It is shown that distinct higher order compartments whose DNA displays a specific replication timing are stably maintained during all interphase stages and have no transcriptional activity detectable by BrUTP pulse labeling and show no evidence of transcriptional competence.
