[…] for a consensus line sequence derived from the 11 individual sequences analyzed in this study. nucleosome positioning predictions were done using three methods: 1) a freely available web server (symcurv at on 31/08/2013) which works on the basis of dna curvature, 2) experimental nucleosome probability data available […]

[…] tss. relative occupancies for ‘appearing’, ‘evicted’ and ‘fragile’ nucleosomes were presented as mean percentage of overlap of the genomic region., theoretical nucleosome affinity was performed with symcurv (), an ab initio algorithm based on the concept of the symmetry of dna curvature. briefly, symcurv values were calculated at nucleotide resolution for a given dna sequence as a score […]

[…] work [], we introduced a structural property that quantifies the strength of the pattern described above. we implemented this concept ('symmetry of dna curvature') in a suitably adjusted method (symcurv), which permits us to attribute a symmetry of curvature score to each nucleotide on a given dna sequence (see methods for details). we calculated symcurv for the complete genome sequence […]
