There are extensive long-distance chromosomal interactions in eukaryotic genomes, but to what extent these interactions affect gene expression is not clear. Recent works have identified several cases where clustering of co-regulated genes leads to enhanced gene expression in budding yeast. Similar phenomenon was also observed in mammalian cells. These results challenge widely held views of gene regulation in yeast and further our understanding of how the 3D organization of the genome contribute to gene regulation in eukaryotes.
