ATACseq fragment/insert length distribution: Peak of Mononucleosome Fragments larger than the NFR peak

Hello,

I've noticed that the mononucleosome fragment peak (~200bps) is larger than the nucleosome free fragment peak (~100bps). Since it's usually the other way round I was wondering what people thought about this? is this something of concern?

This data was generated using the OmniATAC protocol using a breast cancer cell line. 75bps pair-end sequencing and reads aligning to the mitochondria were removed.

I would not overinterpret these metrics. Just check how the data look on a genome browser, so whether there is clear separation of signal and noise and calculate the FRiP, so the percentrage of reads overlapping callable peaks. That is usually for a good library something > 10%, we often get up to 50% in very good samples. I think if this distribution here indicates something fishy then it will manifest in other QC metrics or somewhere in downstream analysis, and if not then ignore it.

Hey Alexander. Thanks so much for clearing that up! FRIP is around 50% for all of them and bigwig peaks look good in IGV. Cheers, Antonio.
