What is the reason for a plant cell to have their nucleus at the periphery instead of the centre, as like in an animal cell?
Vacuole occupies most of the space in cytoplasm of the plant cell. Thus nucleus is pushed towards theperiphery of cell Whereas animal cell contains all other cell organelles at definite positions in cytoplasm thus nucleus lies at centre in an anim...

The role of 3D genome organization in development and cell differentiation
The 3D organization of the genome is crucial for gametogenesis, embryogenesis and cell differentiation through its modulation of transcription, DNA replication and cell division. Recent studies have highlighted the roles of 3D chromatin dynamics, such as the formation of enhancer–promoter interactions in mammalian development.
