In mammals, germ cells undergo a series of events to give rise to haploid gametes. The dynamics of meiotic chromatin architecture still remain poorly understood. By applying Hi-C to mouse oocytes, Du et al. reveal a unique Polycomb-regulated chromatin architecture, which adds a new perspective to the non-canonical oocyte epigenomes.
