I have some RNA-Seq data and I'd like to align it to the physical genome and see which sections of chromatin are geometrically open and being transcribed. The data are already sequence-aligned, and every Google search I do for tools that might help ends up sending me down a rabbit hole. What computational tools have helped you?
