These tracks show the results from Micrococcal Nuclease sequencing (MNase-seq) of Drosophila embryos during the midblastula transition (MBT).

The datasets were retrieved from the Gene Expression Omnibus database at NCBI under the accession number GSE41686. The MNase-seq reads were mapped against the D. melanogaster genome using bowtie with the following parameters: -m 1 -v 2 --fr.

The nucleosome positions and the smoothed coverage track were created using DANPOS2 with default parameters and --paired 1. The Reads Per Genomic Content (RPGC) coverage track was created using deepTools with the following parameters: --MNase --binSize 1 --normalizeTo1x 142000000.
