Explain the relationship between chromatin packaging and transcription rates. Name two different types of chromatin modification associated with changes in gene expression. Indicate how the DNA or protein is modified chemically and how the modification affects the chromatin structure (that is, does the modification relax or compact chromatin? Is the modification associated with active or inactive chromatin?)
