    Antibodies are generated through remote genomic interactions involving immunoglobulin variable (VH), diversity (DH) and joining (JH) gene segments. Here the authors develop a strategy to track VH-DHJH motion in B-lymphocytes and provide evidence that chromosome organisation near the sol-gel phase transition dictates the timing of genomic interactions to orchestrate gene expression and somatic recombination.
