A press release introducing the PHi-C, an original simulation method of the Hi-C data analysis by Dr. Soya Shinkai, has been issued.
We have discovered a formula that links the contact probability in Hi-C matrix data and the interaction parameter of the polymer network model. Using Hi-C matrix data as input, the PHi-C method allows for the simulation of the dynamic 3D genome in living cells.
