DOI: 10.1186/s13072-017-0153-1

[…] and mapped to hg38 with bowtie [] within the chipster or galaxy platform [, ] retaining only uniquely mapped reads. peaks were called with macs [] using the broad option and using macs2 within the chipster platform. peak intersection was determined using bedtools []. density profiles of normalized reads per kilobase per million (rpkm) were generated in deeptools [] and visualized […]

PMCID: 3597017
PMID: 23065637
DOI: 10.1242/dmm.010140

[…] profiles were determined using the illumina mousewg-6 v2.0 expression beadchip and genomestudio data analysis software (illumina, san diego, ca). gene expression analysis was performed with chipster v1.4.7 analysis software (csc, espoo, finland), and data normalization was carried out using the quantile method. quality control was performed to ensure the technical quality […]

PMID: 29707146
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.24880

[…] we performed microarray hybridizations to find clues on the possible mechanisms of action of aloe-emodin. ccrf-cem cells were treated with the ic50 of aloe-emodin or dmso for 48 h. using chipster software, 1712 genes were deregulated upon aloe-emodin treatment in comparison with dmso treatment as control. these genes were subsequently subjected to ingenuity pathway analysis (ipa) […]

PMID: 29614052
DOI: 10.3390/v10040174

[…] assembly pipeline [] and alignment using the computers at the centers for scientific computing []. the genome sequences were aligned using the multiple sequence alignment program mafft [] at the chipster platform []. the annotations were performed using rast server [] and manually annotated using the artemis genome browser and annotation tool []. some rast-identified open reading frames […]

PMCID: 5735295
PMID: 29270355
DOI: 10.1016/j.lrr.2017.12.001

[…] raw microarray data (affymetrix human genome u133 plus 2.0 array) were downloaded for the samples reported by gentles et al. (gse24006) and by novershtern et al., (gse24759) , imported into chipster (, normalized using robust multiarray average (rma) protocol and the expression of the ecm signature studied. to facilitate cross-comparison with gse24006, data […]

PMID: 29230965
DOI: 10.1002/jcsm.12265

[…] and quality control. raw data were normalized with quantile normalization (including log2‐transformation of the data), data quality was assessed, and statistical analyses were performed by using chipster software (it center for science, espoo, finland). statistically significant differences in individual genes between the groups were tested by using empirical bayes statistics […]
