    The position of a gene within the nucleus can be a determinant of the level of gene activity. In recent years, particular emphasis has been placed on the nuclear envelope as a transcriptionally silent nuclear location. A provocative study on the relationship between nuclear architecture and transcription of the HIV provirus, published in this issue of The EMBO Journal, warrants a broader view.
