- The field of 3D genomics grew at increasing rates in the last decade. The volume and complexity of 2D and 3D data produced is progressively outpacing the capacities of the technology previously used for distributing genome sequences. The emergence of new technologies provides also novel opportunities for the development of innovative approaches. In this paper, we review the state-of-the-art computing technology, as well as the solutions adopted by the platforms currently available.
