This track represents the 5′ end of PEAT reads generated by Morton
et al. (2014). PEAT stands for "paired-end analysis of
transcription start sites" and provides millions of TSS locations
from wild-type Columbia-0 Arabidopsis thaliana whole root
BAM files of mapped reads were downloaded from here and converted to BED using the "bamToBed" tool
of the bedtools
suite. Only the 5′-end coordinate of each read was retained, facilitating the visual identification of the putative TSS.
Data were generated Morton et al. (2014) and processed by
the EPD team at the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (Dreos et
al. 2013). For inquiries, please contact us using the on-line
