Transcriptional regulatory network (TRN) is a directed complex network composed of all regulatory interactions between transcription factors and corresponding target genes. Recently, the three-dimensional (3D) genomics studies have shown that the 3D structure of the genome makes a difference to the regulation of gene transcription, which provides us with a novel perspective. In this study, we constructed the TRN of the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and placed it in the context of 3D genome model. We analyzed the spatial organization of the yeast TRN on four levels: global feature, central nodes, hierarchical structure and network motifs. Our results suggested that the TRN of S. cerevisiae presents an optimized structure in space to adapt to functional requirement.
