The organization and the dynamics of chromatin in the cell nucleus are still not resolved. Experimental and theoretical approaches are now converging and I propose to summarize recent progress using polymer models, mathematical analysis for studying stochatic single particle trajectories. Finally, we will discuss asymptotic methods for estimating the mean time for a polymer to loop, interpreting large data sets and reconstructing chromatin organization.
