PLoS ONE   14(2) e0203099   Apr 2019   [Refereed]
Long-range associations between enhancers and their target gene promoters have been shown to play critical roles in executing genome function. Recent variations of chromosome capture technology have revealed a comprehensive view of intra- and inte...
