NucPosDB is a manually curated database based on more than 400 publications reporting experimental nucleosome maps in vivo across different cell types and conditions, cell-free DNA datasets in human patients and model organisms as well as software for computational analysis and modelling of nucleosome positioning and “nucleosomics” analysis for medical diagnostics.
This is the most recent addition to the database, which is expanding quickly. It contains sequenced cell-free DNA (cfDNA) from body liquids such as blood plasma, urine, cerebrospinal liquid, etc.
This section of the database is devoted to experimental datasets such as MNase-seq, MNase-assisted H3 ChIP-seq, chemical mapping, etc, conducted in cells or tissues.
This repository contains software tools for prediction of nucleosome positioning from DNA sequence based on biophysics or bioinformatics approaches
This repository currently contains software solutions for analysis of MNase-seq, chemical nucleosome mapping and other experimental techniques to map nucleosomes
This repository is devoted to bioinformatics tools for the basic analysis of cfDNA, such as determining mutations, copy number variations, DNA methylation and nucleosome positioning reconstruction.
