[…] using macs2 version () under default settings and a p-value cutoff of 1e–05. we used –broad -g hs –keep-dup = auto -p 1e-5 -m 10 200 –bw 200 and selected broad peak calls., the fstitch algorithm () was used to identify genomic regions enriched with h3k9ac and –k27ac signal from hct116 chip-seq experiments. in order to acquire uniform fstitch signal calls across experiments […]

[…] our model on publicly available biological data. to perform model inference of rnap location requires an interval [a,b] where gro-seq read mapping data (d) can be collected. to this end, we utilized fast read stitcher (fstitch) that implements a maximum entropy markov model to segment the genome into ‘transcribed regions’ (, ). in a hct116 gro-seq dataset (), fstitch classified 19 709 […]
