The 3-dimensional nature of chromatin architecture plays crucial roles in regulating gene expression in development, homeostasis, and disease. Until recently, however, comprehensive chromatin profiling in human kidneys has been lacking. In this issue, Eun and Kim et al. employed a multimodal approach by integrating a single-nucleus assay for transposase-accessible chromatin sequencing, chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing, and Hi-C (a method to comprehensively detect chromatin interactions) to investigate how the epigenetic landscape is altered in diabetic kidney disease.
