A reader raised the similarity between this article and another published by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press in January:
Giorgio Bernardi: Genome Organization and Chromosome Architecture. Cold Spring Harb Symp Quant Biol 2016. Published in Advance 2016, doi: 10.1101/sqb.2015.80.027318 http://symposium.cshlp.or...

Our policy on related articles is available at There is some overlap in content between the two articles, however there are also differences in focus and scope between the publications. While the submission was under consideration, Prof. Bernardi informed PLOS of his intention to publish another manuscript in a CSHLP symposium book that put the work in a larger perspective. Prof. Bernardi informed the editors of the symposium of the article submitted to PLOS ONE, he cited the PLOS ONE article, and he attributed the reproduced figures to the PLOS ONE article in the figure legends.
