- chromatin structure
Control of gene expression is an essential element for appropriate development. This is mainly achieved at the level of transcription. It involves both cis- and transacting-acting factors. The identification and characterization of these factors will enhance the development of gene finding programs that can be used to scan genomic sequences. Chromatin structure also has a role in mediating the control of transcription of various regions of the genome.
