NSome Stringency (nucleosomeStringency) Track Description


The plot represents stringency of nucleosome positioning (at the dyad) as a fraction of positioned nucleosomes. Stringency metric is given by a ratio of putative mononucleosome dyad instances falling in a 23 base pair window of a given site to the number of infringing nucleosome dyads in a 300 base pair window.


The data for this track is supplied by the Sidow Lab and the Fire Lab at the Stanford School of Medicine.
