nuScore -- a web-interface for nucleosome positioning predictions

What you can do:
Deformation energy and nucleosome-positioning score calculator.
Highlights:
  • NuScore is a web-interface for estimation of the affinity of the histone core to DNA and prediction of nucleosome arrangement on a given sequence.
  • It is based on assessment of the energy cost of imposing the deformations required to wrap DNA around the histone surface.
  • The interface allows the user to specify a number of options such as selecting from several structural templates for threading calculations and adding random sequences to the analysis.
Keywords:
  • Nucleosomes
  • Sequence Alignment
  • deformation energy
  • histone
