Chromatin accessibility plays a key role in epigenetic regulation of gene activation and silencing. Open chromatin regions allow regulatory elements such as transcription factors and polymerases to bind for gene expression while closed chromatin regions prevent the activity of transcriptional machinery. Recently, nucleosome occupancy and methylome sequencing (NOMe-seq) has been developed for simultaneously profiling of chromatin accessibility and DNA methylation on single molecules. However, there is no computational method for analyzing NOMe-seq data. Results: In this article, we present CAME, a seed-extension based approach that identifies chromatin accessibility from NOMe-seq. The efficiency and effectiveness of CAME were demonstrated through comparisons with other existing techniques on both simulated and real data, and the results show that our method not only can precisely identify chromatin accessibility but also outperforms other methods.
