Generate synthetic nucleosome maps

Bioconductor version: 3.17

This package can generate a synthetic map with reads covering the nucleosome regions as well as a synthetic map with forward and reverse reads emulating next-generation sequencing. The synthetic hybridization data of “Tiling Arrays” can also be generated. The user has choice between three different distributions for the read positioning: Normal, Student and Uniform. In addition, a visualization tool is provided to explore the synthetic nucleosome maps.
