Chromatin is the substrate of gene regulatory processes in eukaryotic cells. Faithful transcription relies on finely tuned chromatin remodelling mechanisms that enable temporal access to – or the blocking of – DNA critical sequences. The minireview series on chromatin remodelling brings together approaches from molecular biology, biophysics, imaging and modelling that describe the current state of understanding of remodeller properties.
