Calculation of the NRL for ESCs based on the data from GSM2183911 (complete MNase-digestion of wild-type ESCs [24]) using scripts and plotNRL.R. a The average frequency of nucleosome-nucleosome distances genome-wide. b Peak positions plotted as a function of the peak numbers from panel (a). The linear fit of these points reveals the NRL and the error of its determination. In this case, NRL = 190.4 ± 0.7 bp. This is the genome-average NRL. NRLs calculated for smaller genomic regions may differ from each other; the genome-wide NRL is the average of all local NRLs
