Aggregate profiles showing different properties of the nucleosome occupancy signatures at stable and fuzzy 100-bp genomic regions calculated using for the data from GSM2183911 (complete MNase-digestion of wild-type ESCs [24]). a Stable regions have increased nucleosome occupancy and act as a boundary statistically positioning nearby nucleosomes. The insert shows regular oscillations of the 1st derivative of the nucleosome occupancy. b Fuzzy regions have decreased nucleosome occupancy and are not associated with specifically positioned nucleosomes. These are preferentially nucleosome-depleted regions such as active promoters and enhancers
