Equilibrium globule model
The “equilibrium globule” is an older model that describes how the genome might exist in three-dimensions. Unlike in the “fractal globule” model, here individual strands are highly entangled and regions nearby along the chain are far apart in 3-D. In this image, nearby regions on a chain of DNA are indicated using similar colors.
