Technical Review: A Hitchhiker's Guide to Chromosome Conformation Capture



Technical Review: A Hitchhiker's Guide to Chromosome Conformation Capture



Methods in Molecular Biology 1675: 233-246



The introduction of chromosome conformation capture (3C) technologies boosted the field of 3D-genome research and significantly enhanced the available toolset to study chromosomal architecture. 3C technologies not only offer increased resolution compared to the previously dominant cytological approaches but also allow the simultaneous study of genome-wide 3D chromatin contacts, thereby enabling a candidate-free perspective on 3D-genome architecture. Since its introduction in 2002, 3C technologies evolved rapidly and now constitute a collection of tools, each with their strengths and pitfalls with respect to specific research questions. This chapter aims at guiding 3C novices through the labyrinth of potential applications of the various family members, hopefully providing a valuable basis for choosing the appropriate strategy for different research questions.
