The function of histones - the proteins that enable yards of DNA to be crammed into a single cell - depends on a number of chemical tags adorning their exterior. This sophisticated chemical syntax for packaging DNA into tight little coils or unravelling it again - called the 'histone code' - is the latest frontier for researchers bent on understanding how genetics encodes life...
