[…] ong with the DESeq2 option during DiffBind analyses to identify the set of differentially bound peaks and create the MA plots. Venn diagrams overlapping the different sets of peaks were created using ChIPpeakAnno []. Both DiffBind and ChIPpeakAnno are packages available on Bioconductor [, ]. The Integrative Genomics Viewer was used to visualize the ChIP-seq data []. Motif analysis was performed us […]


The transcription factor Spores Absent A is a PKA dependent inducer of Dictyostelium sporulation

[…] to call peaks by MACS2 with a q-value cut off of <0.01, allowing a 200 bp shift in positions of peak summits between experiments. Peaks were annotated to the gene with the closest start codon, using ChIPpeakAnno. Gene ontology (GO) enrichment was determined using the Amigo tool at the GO consortium ( with a threshold cutoff of p ≥ 0.05. […]


A B ARR mediated cytokinin transcriptional network directs hormone cross regulation and shoot development

[…] , 0.01, 0.001. The aligned reads with at least two biological replicates were processed using the irreproducibility discovery rate (IDR). The p-value cutoff was 1e-16. Peaks were then annotated using ChIPpeakAnno package. In order for us to classify a peak as associating with a gene, the peak summit must have been within 1.5 kb upstream and downstream of the gene’s annotation. The gene length was […]

[…] tween −1 kb and +1 kb of the TSSs using the ‘intersect’ tool in the bedtools software (v2.26.0). MSCS2 (v2.2.1) was used for the peak calling. For further analyses and visualization, ngsplot (v2.41), ChIPpeakAnno (v3.5), Homer (v4.9), and Integrative Genome Viewer (v2.3.91) were used. Sequences of qPCR primers for ChIP-qPCR are as follows: Prdm1 forward (fwd): CCAGTAGGCCTTT CATGGCT, Prdm1 reverse […]

[…] on. After creating a contrast between conditions, the R package DiffBind runs an edgeR analysis with a false discovery rate (FDR) < 0.1 to call the differentially methylated regions (DMRs). Then, the ChIPpeakAnno package was used for the genomic annotation of the previously identified DMRs. This software provides information about the distance, relative position, and overlaps for the inquired feat […]
