Summary of "Three-Dimensional Thermodynamic Simulation of Condensin as a DNA-Based Translocase."

Chromatin dynamics and organization can be altered by condensin complexes. In turn, the molecular behavior of a condensin complex changes based on the tension of the substrate to which condensin is bound. This interplay between chromatin organization and condensin behavior demonstrates the need for tools that allows condensin complexes to be observed on a variety of chromatin organizations. We provide a method for simulating condensin complexes on a dynamic polymer substrate using the polymer dynamics simulator ChromoShake and the condensin simulator RotoStep. These simulations can be converted into simulated fluorescent images that are able to be directly compared to experimental images of condensin and fluorescently labeled chromatin. Our pipeline enables users to explore how changes in condensin behavior alters chromatin dynamics and vice versa while providing simulated image datasets that can be directly compared to experimental observations.

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED). (From Lane & Sharfaei, Modern Sectional Anatomy, 1992, Preface)
