Hierarchy of levels of chromatin condensation.
Packing ratio of DNA.
Mechanism of regulation for prokaryotes vs. eukaryotes.
Early experiences with science.
In 1974, Roger Kornberg worked out the importance of histones to chromatin structure.
A chromosome is a package for DNA.
DNA is coiled around proteins and packaged as chromatin within the nucleus of cells. Aaron Klug and Roger Kornberg figured out the structure of chromatin. It has been proposed that the coiling (or rather uncoiling) of DNA is a way of controlling the pro
