[…] to improve disease risk prediction performance []., we used tissue-specific snp annotations from the encode [] and the roadmap [] projects in the present study. specifically, we downloaded the broadpeak files from the roadmap epigenomics web portal ( the broadpeak files contain peak regions for four histone marks (h3k27me3, h3k36me3, h3k4me1, […]

[…] parameters), and (2) broader regions of enrichment (broadpeaks) that pass a q-value threshold of 0.05 (broad peak mode of macs v2.1.0). for the broad-range histone marker, h3k27me3, we used the broadpeak representation of macs v2.1.0 peak caller., we designed four different guide rnas (grnas) targeting a 20-bp site (protospacer) in the human cdh1 locus that precedes an ngg trinucleotides, […]
