nucleoSim: Generate synthetic nucleosome maps
This nucleoSim package generate synthetic nucleosome maps using parameters given by users. Three different distributions are available: Normal, Student and Uniform.
The package has been largely inspired by the Generating synthetic maps section of the Bioconductor nucleR package (Flores and Orozco, 2011).
