The link between bacteria and host chromatin remodeling is an emerging topic. The exciting recent discoveries on bacterial impact on host epigenetics, as discussed in this Review, highlight yet another strategy used by bacterial pathogens to interfere with key cellular processes. The study of how pathogens provoke host chromatin changes will also provide new insights into host epigenetic regulation mechanisms.
