Scientists are unfolding the 3D origami map of the genome

The genome is folded up like a tiny origami crane inside each of our cells, and for the first time, researchers are unfolding and revealing the “loops” with a high-resolution map. IFLScience explains how intricate this process is: Each cell in your body contains about 3 billion nucleotides, which is enough DNA to stretch out […]
