Simulating topological domains in human chromosomes with a fitting-free model

Abstract:

We discuss a polymer model for the 3D organization of human chromosomes. A chromosome is represented by a string of beads, with each bead being "colored" according to 1D bioinformatic data (e.g., chromatin state, histone modification, GC content). Individual spheres (representing bi- and multi-valent transcription factors) can bind reversibly and selectively to beads with the appropriate color. During molecular dynamics simulations, the factors bind, and the string spontaneously folds into lo...
