Range ~10хn+7.5 nucleotides
Organism Human Homo sapiens

Method Mapping of nucleosome positions in the dinucleosome database based on the observed periodicity
Comments Based on the localization of the nucleosomes predicted by this periodicity, the two nucleosomes on the same dinucleosome DNA sequence are separated by a linker of typical length 7.5+~10nt (Figure 8). (n is integer)
