Highlight A 3-D analysis of Brachypodium interphase nuclei reveals varying patterns of centromere and telomere distribution among closely related species and indicates the factors that may influence the nucleus architecture. 
The arrangement of Brachypodium distachyon chromosomes in interphase nuclei
Highlight A comparison between experimentally observed and computationally simulated 3-D nuclei of the model grass Brachypodium distachyon reveals that the homologous chromosome territories associateExpand
DNA replication and chromosome positioning throughout the interphase in three dimensional space of plant nuclei
TLDR
Telomere and centromere replication timing and interphase chromosome positioning in seven grass species differing in genome size indicates a more complex relation between genome size and the chromosome positioning. Expand
DNA replication and chromosome positioning throughout the interphase in three-dimensional space of plant nuclei.
TLDR
A more complex interplay exists between genome size, organization of repetitive DNA sequences along chromosomes, and higher order chromatin structure and its maintenance in interphase, albeit controlled by currently unknown factors. Expand
Nuclear Disposition of Alien Chromosome Introgressions into Wheat and Rye Using 3D-FISH
TLDR
The nuclear disposition of alien rye and barley chromosomes and chromosome arm introgressions into wheat while using 3D-FISH in various somatic tissues was analyzed and all of the introgressed chromosomes showed Rabl’s orientation, but their relative positions in the nuclei were less clear. Expand
Epigenetics of the preferential silencing of Brachypodium stacei-originated 35S rDNA loci in the allotetraploid grass Brachypodium hybridum
TLDR
The epigenetic status of 35S rRNA gene loci in the monocotyledonous Brachypodium hybridum, which is an allotetraploid that has resulted from a cross between B. distachyon and B. stacei, was investigated and it was revealed that the repressed B.Stacei-inherited rDNA loci are characterised by a high level of DNA methylation. Expand
Chromosome identification and reconstruction of evolutionary rearrangements in Brachypodium distachyon, B. stacei and B. hybridum
TLDR
Comparative chromosome barcoding reveals rearrangements responsible for the diverse organization of Bd and Bs genomes and provides new data regarding karyotype evolution since the split of the two diploids. Expand
Meiosis in Polyploids and Implications for Genetic Mapping: A Review
TLDR
This review describes in detail the meiotic process in auto- and allopolyploids from the onset of prophase I through pairing, recombination, and bivalent formation, highlighting recent findings on the genetic control and mode of action of specific proteins that lead to diploid-like meiosis behavior in polyploid species.

3-D Nucleus Architecture in Oat × Maize Addition Lines
TLDR
The spatial distribution of introgressed maize chromatin in oat × maize addition lines with the number of added maize chromosomes varying from one to four was studied to shed more light on the processes that shape the nucleus architecture in hybrids. Expand
The Easter Egg Weevil (Pachyrhynchus) genome reveals synteny in Coleoptera across 200 million years of evolution
TLDR
It is found that synteny largely scales with clade age, with younger clades, such as Lepidoptera, having especially high synteny, however, there are subtle differences in the maintenance of synteny and its rate of decay among the insect orders. Expand
Mitogen-activated protein kinases concentrate in the vicinity of chromosomes and may regulate directly cellular patterning in Vicia faba embryos
TLDR
The presented data indicate that mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) concentrate in the vicinity of chromosomes and form visible foci there and implies that the chromosomal localization of MAPKs may be one of the mechanisms involved in establishment of cellular patterns in some plant species.

Telomeres Cluster De Novo before the Initiation of Synapsis: A Three-dimensional Spatial Analysis of Telomere Positions before and during Meiotic Prophase
TLDR
It is found that nuclei at the last somatic prophase before meiosis exhibit a nonrandom, polarized chromosome organization resulting in a loose grouping of telomeres and the formation of the cluster itself is an early event in the nuclear reorganizations associated with meiosis. Expand
Rabl orientation of CENP-B box sequences in Tupaia belangeri fibroblasts.
TLDR
The chromosomes of the tree shrew Tupaia belangeri exhibit highly localized CENP-B box sequences in the centromeric regions of most chromosomes, suggesting that Robertsonian and tandem chromosome fusion events have occurred in the karyotypic evolution of Tupaiidae. Expand
Non-Rabl Patterns of Centromere and Telomere Distribution in the Interphase Nuclei of Plant Cells
TLDR
Both Rabl and non-Rabl distribution patterns of centromeres and telomeres were consistent in interphase nuclei derived from meristematic root tip cells, microspore mother cells and differentiated leaf cells, demonstrating that there is a diversity of interphase chromatin organization. Expand
Yeast Nuclei Display Prominent Centromere Clustering That Is Reduced in Nondividing Cells and in Meiotic Prophase
TLDR
It is found that during interphase centromeres are tightly clustered in a peripheral region of the nucleus, whereas telomeres tend to occupy the area outside the centromeric domain. Expand
Non-random radial arrangements of interphase chromosome territories: evolutionary considerations and functional implications.
TLDR
Data lend tentative support to the hypothesis that differences in the radial nuclear positions of gene-rich, early replicating and gene-poor, later replicating chromatin have been evolutionarily conserved during a period of more than 300 million years irrespective of the evolution of highly divergent karyotypes between humans and chicken.

Localization of telomeres in plant interphase nuclei by in situ hybridization and 3D confocal microscopy
TLDR
In V. faba nuclei, the telomeres were clearly clustered at one pole while in P. sativum there was only a slight tendency for clustering, and clusters were found at opposite poles in pairs of sister nuclei rather than at adjacent poles as would be expected if the arrangement at telophase were maintained into interphase.
