3D genome organization and GRiNCH with Da-Inn Erika Lee (#61)
June 23, 2021
In this episode, Jacob Schreiber interviews Da-Inn Erika Lee about data and computational methods for making sense of 3D genome structure. They begin their discussion by talking about 3D genome structure at a high level and the challenges in working with such data. Then, they discuss a method recently developed by Erika, named GRiNCH, that mines this data to identify spans of the genome that cluster together in 3D space and potentially help control gene regulation.
