In Sunday Morning Insight: Structured Sparsity and Structural DNA Folding Information, I mentioned the following
At the very least, there ought to be a trace of the cyclicality induced by the 147 base pairs wrapped into the nucleosomes.
So I went ahead and asked if the specialists noticed some cyclicality in genomic studies based on the fact that every 147 base pairs wrapped up around the histones are in fact physical neighbors:
I was wondering if the wrapping of the DNA around the nuclesome had been picked in GWAS studies or otherwise
Here was the answer:
While I believe that this can be an important signal, I am not aware of existing GWASs linking this.
Wow! Maybe with the right transform  or the right regularization....
