Many labs and many projects in biology institutes and university departments have been starting to study chromatin. Chromatin states, chromatin interactions, chromatin loopings, chromatin behaviours, etc. seem to have become the new priority of cancer scientists.
I'm new to this field so there are many things that I still have to understand about chromatin and its relationship to cancer. These questions just flowed into my mind:
What is the relationship between chromatin and cancer?
In cancer research, why is it so important to study chromatin and how chromatin loopings form?
What do scientists would like to find out about chromatin when they investigate it?
