Python package for calling nucleosomes using ATAC-seq data. Also includes general scripts for working with paired-end ATAC-seq data (or potentially other paired-end data).

Please cite our paper at Genome Research if you use this tool in your research.

Please use GitHub Issues to bring up any errors that occur with software rather than emailing authors.

Note on Versions:

  • version 0 represents code used for biorxiv manuscript
  • version 0.2.1 was used for Genome Research manuscript (See Supplemental Information as well)

Currently NucleoATAC only supports Python 2.7 (No Python 3). If anyone is interested in adding Python 3 support, pull requests welcome 😄
