The plot represents relative mononucleosome enrichment at each position in the genome (on a log of 2 scale). The coverage metric is given according to a formula [ (1+n)/N ] / [ (1+c)/C ] where n and c are the numbers of putative 147 base pair cores covering each base pair from nucleosome and control data, N and C are the total number of nucleosome and control reads obtained by SOLiD sequencing with 25 base pairs mapped to the reference genome.
