Featured article: High-resolution mapping of centromeric protein association using APEX-chromatin fibers

The centromere is a specialized chromosomal locus that forms the basis for the assembly of a multi-protein complex, the kinetochore and ensures faithful chromosome segregation during every cell division. The repetitive nature of the underlying centromeric sequence represents a major obstacle for high-resolution mapping of protein binding using methods that rely on annotated genomes. Here, we present a novel microscopy-based approach called “APEX-chromatin fibers” for localizing protein binding over the repetitive centromeric sequences at kilobase resolution.

Aims and scope

Epigenetics & Chromatin is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes research, and reviews, providing novel insights into epigenetic inheritance and chromatin-based interactions. The journal aims to understand how gene and chromosomal elements are regulated and their activities maintained during processes such as cell division, differentiation and environmental alteration.

Efficient peer review

Expedited: we recognise that scientifically sound, high quality manuscripts are often turned away from broad-scope "high-impact" journals based on the issue of "general interest." As a specialist journal, Epigenetics & Chromatin will consider rapid publication of such manuscripts if they are submitted as presubmission inquiries together with the original peer reviewer reports, letter of rejection, and a brief rebuttal.

Journal Authority Factor = 111.5

The Journal Authority Factor (JAF) is the average h-index of a journal’s senior editors. The JAF thus complements the Impact Factor by providing a measure of the experience of journal editors as practicing scientists and authors. All manuscripts submitted to Epigenetics & Chromatin are evaluated by the Editors-in-Chief, who also recommend reviewers, evaluate reviews and make all decisions regarding acceptance, revision or rejection. Our JAF of 111.5 compares favorably with that of academic society journals, such as  PNAS  (59.9), and professionally edited journals, such as Nature (6.5).
