The original article
(http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0156905)
closes with:
"Analysis of two high resolution nucleosome maps revealed strong
signals that—even though they do not constitute a definite proof—are
at least consistent with such a view."

Physorg opens their popularizing note about the above article with:
"Second layer of information in DNA confirmed"

Interesting.
