Stem Cell Reports will publish a special issue of the journal with a focus on chromatin and nuclear architecture.

Chromatin, comprised of DNA, histones, and additional structural proteins, is the fundamental unit of life. Essentially all cellular processes are governed by changes in chromatin structure, which, in turn, regulates gene expression. Such changes are particularly pertinent in stem cells, which maintain potency on the one hand, but undergo massive changes upon differentiation on the other.
