In the recent years, considerable advances have been made towards understanding the structure and function of the bacterial chromosome. A number of different factors appear to cooperate in condensing DNA into a highly dynamic assembly of supercoiled loops. Despite this variability in the lower levels of chromatin structure, the global arrangement of chromosomal DNA within the cell is surprisingly conserved, with loci being arrayed along the cellular long axis in line with their order on the… CONTINUE READING
