Nucleosee. A Visual GEnome-wide search tool for Nucleosome PatternsNucleosee is a nucleosome pattern search method that converts levels of nucleosomal occupancy to a sequence-like format to which BWT searches can be applied. The method is embedded in a nucleosome map browser, "Nucleosee", an interactive visual tool specifically designed to enhance BWT searches, giving them context and making them suitable for visual discourse analysis of the results. The proposed method is fast, flexible and sufficiently generic for the exploration of data in a broad and interactive way.



The proposed algorithm and visual browser are available for testing at The source code and installation packages are also available at
