DNA repair occurs in a chromatin context, and nucleosome remodeling is now recognized as an important regulatory feature by allowing repair factors access to damaged sites. The yeast mating type locus (MAT) has emerged an excellent model to study the role of chromatin remodeling at a well-defined DNA double-strand break (DSB). We discuss methods to study nucleosome dynamics and DSB repair factor recruitment to the MAT locus after a DSB has been formed.
