With Chromosome Conformation Capture (3C), the relative interaction frequency of one chromosomal fragment with another can be determined. The technique is especially suited for unraveling the 3D organization of specific loci when focusing on aspects such as enhancer–promoter interactions or other topological conformations of the genome. 3C has been extensively used in animal systems, among others providing insight into gene regulation by distant cis-regulatory elements. In recent years, the 3C technique has been applied in plant research. However, the complexity of plant tissues prevents direct application of existing protocols from animals. Here, we describe an adapted protocol suitable for plant tissues, especially Arabidopsis thaliana and Zea mays.
