This collection includes recent articles from across the Nature group of journals and showcases both the latest advances in the methodologies used to study genome organization, and our recent understanding of how genome organization and nuclear architecture regulate gene expression, cell fate and cell function in physiology and disease.
It certainly doesn’t feel like three years since the first papers were published in Nature Plants on the 8th January 2015. However, as Nature Plants embarks on its 4th volume this seems like a good time to look back on the research we have published in the last three years. It is always difficult choosing the ‘highlights’ from such a wide-ranging collection of research, so for this anniversary we have looked to see which have been the highest performers by a few measures. The most read papers as judged by the number of times that they have been downloaded from our site. The most cited papers from each of the three years of Nature Plant’s run. And finally the most discussed papers as judged by the Altmetric scores that they have accrued. One interesting result of this exercise is the realisation that the top papers by each measure are not the same!
