Spanish researchers describe chromatin accessibility profiles in the Plasmodium falciparum malaria parasite across four stages of development. The team turned to ATAC-seq to assay actively transcribed regions of the P. falciparum genome, related histone modifications, and new regulatory regions. The analysis suggests chromatin accessibility in the malaria parasite genome typically lines up with transcriptional dynamics over the course of development, for example.
