Term Information [More information on chromatin assembly]

Accession
GO:0031497
Name
chromatin assembly
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
establishment of chromatin architecture
Definition
The assembly of DNA, histone proteins, other associated proteins, and sometimes RNA, into chromatin structure, beginning with the formation of the basic unit, the nucleosome, followed by organization of the nucleosomes into higher order structures, ultimately giving rise to a complex organization of specific domains within the nucleus.
