AbstractTo accommodate genomes in the limited space of the cell nucleus and ensure the correct execution of gene expression programs, genomes are packaged in complex fashion in the three-dimensional cell nucleus. As a consequence of the extensive higher-order organization of chromosomes, distantly located genomic regions on the same or distinct chromosomes undergo long-range interactions. This article discusses the nature of long interactions, mechanisms of their formation, and their emerging functional roles in gene regulation and genome maintenance.
