Unique genome architectures after fertilisation in single-cell embryos

Using a newly developed method researchers at the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (IMBA) have been able to shed light on the complexity of genome reorganization occurring during the first hours after fertilization in the single-cell mammalian embryo. Their findings have recently been published in the journal Nature. (Mehr in: Pressemitteilungen – idw – Informationsdienst Wissenschaft)
