|Abstract:||The rencent advanced technique in genome analysis has demonstrated that chromatins have preferred three dimensional (3D) structures.Through spatial folding, two distance genes along nucleotide sequence can contact each other in space. Such property is of vital importance to the functional activities of genes, like gene controlling and gene-gene interactions. In order to understand the structure of chromosomal 3D structures, lot of efforts have put into this topic in the past ten years. Like the 3C methods, which can caputure the physical contacts of chromsomal fragments. But most of them can not anylysis the whole genome simultaneous. Lieberman-Aiden et. al. devisied a new method named Hi-C in 2009, as a modified 3C technique, which can perform a high-thoughput analysis of the whole genome contact informations at the same time. They demonstrated with the anlysis of human genome data at a 1MB resolutions, and recently, they made it at a 5Kb resolutions  with in situ protocol. Lot's of algorithms, like ChromSDE, and ShRec3D, working on the reconstruction problems. However they cannot handle volume dataset well. There are two difficults, the data size is too large which can not store in memory or the running time is not acceptable. Hence, we proposed a devide-conquer approach to perform the reconstruction task, which is magnitude faster than other algorithms. And by conducting a two phases process, coarse-grain reconstruction and refinement, our algorithm also produced a more credible structure.|
