Abstract

Each cell of our body contains two meters of DNA stored in ten micrometers nucleus. Why does not it tangle? In the talk, recent numerical, theoretical, and experimental advances in the field will be reviewed in connection to one another. The melt of non-concatenated rings will be presented as a workhorse theoretical model to explain many relevant features, including chromosome territoroes and experimentally observed scaling of contact probabilities.
