[…] san diego, ca, usa). cage tags were mapped to the mouse genome (mm10) using bowtie2 version 2.2.5. ctsss, which corresponded to promoter candidates, were identified using the bioconductor package, cager, version 1.14.0 and bsgenome.mmusculus.ucsc.mm10, version 1.4.0. cage tag counts per ctss were plotted as scatter plots and pearson correlations between all possible pairs of samples […]

[…] leading:3 trailing:3 slidingwindow:4:10 leading:3 trailing:3 minlen:20. then, the trimmed reads were mapped to the usmarcv1.0 reference genome using star (v2.4.1a) []. the r/bioconductor package cager (v1.14.0) [] was used to obtain transcription starting site (tss) clusters, as described in its documentation. sequences of 50 bases that flanked the dominant tss of each tss cluster […]

[…] to the human genome build hg19/grch37 tophat (v1.4.1). bru-seq data from induced samples were compared with uninduced samples and fold differences determined., cage data were analysed with the cager package. briefly, after bam file preprocessing and quality (mappingq≥20) filtering, cage tags were normalized and tsss distance-based clustering (20 bp distance) was performed. then, aggregate […]

[…] h3k9ac, in the epigenome roadmap dataset. specifically, the fantom dataset heart samples were cnhs11758, cnhs11757, cnhs10621, cnhs10653, cnhs12855, cnhs12856 and cnhs12857 and were downloaded using cager. these were then processed using cager (standard parameters) in order to identify tsss by first normalising the tag counts using a power law and then clustering the reads in order to find cage […]

[…] compiled from the ucsc mm9 refseq annotation [,]. then, cage clusters were computed based on the "fantom3and4"/"fantomtimecoursecagemouse"/"liver_under_constant_darkness" data set as provided by the cager/fantom3and4cage r packages [], using the recommended procedures in the package. cage peak widths were computed for locations ±300 bp of the tsss provided by the ucsc refseq annotation, using […]
