PMID: 29777105
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-04256-y

[…] els detected in all control and TAQed strains were also eliminated as false positives. Genome-rearrangement/mutation events are visualized in Figs.  and as circular plots generated by the R package (ggbio; […]


Using regulatory genomics data to interpret the function of disease variants and prioritise genes from expression studies

PMCID: 5850119
PMID: 29568492
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.14748.r30355

[…] ng of genomic locations to genes. While options for the visualisations of genomic data and interactions are outside the scope of this workflow, at least three good alternatives exist in Bioconductor: ggbio , Sushi and Gviz coupled with the GenomicInteractions package . We refer the reader to these publications and package vignettes for examples.As the sample size and power of GWASs and gene expr […]


Whole genome resequencing and transcriptomic analysis of genes regulating anthocyanin biosynthesis in black rice plants

3 Biotech
PMCID: 5801106
PMID: 29430376
DOI: 10.1007/s13205-018-1140-3

[…] Pathway Studio® software (Ariadne Inc., Rockville, MD, USA). To predict the functions of the selected genes, we identified the most likely chromosomal positions of each gene using the FSTVAL program (GGBio Inc., Yongin, Korea). We found the best mapping position using the BLASTN tool ( with an e value cutoff of ≤ 1.0 × 10−5. We anchored each gene position by a mappi […]


Streamlined ex vivo and in vivo genome editing in mouse embryos using recombinant adeno associated viruses

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5788975
PMID: 29379011
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-02706-7

[…] cts are not falsely identified as integration events. The resulting positive reads were then mapped to the mm10 mouse genome using BWA-MEM. Integration events were summarized using a custom R-script (ggbio) to display as a karyogram. […]


Pronounced strain specific chemosensory receptor gene expression in the mouse vomeronasal organ

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5727874
PMID: 29233099
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4364-4

[…] the Poisson test using the function ppois to compare the percentage of DE genes within the window with the percentage of DE genes in the entire genome. Data were visualized using GenomicRanges [] and ggbio [].Tracks for SNP identification and visualization were created using Integrative Genomics Viewer []. Identified SNPs were incorporated into the reference sequences from Ensembl, and translated […]


Insights into beta cell regeneration for diabetes via integration of molecular landscapes in human insulinomas

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5626682
PMID: 28974674
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-00992-9

[…] ely normal, with that of beta cell controls slightly more skewed than insulinoma. All features were annotated by SnpEff 3.0 using dbSNP version 138 and GRCh38, Ensembl version 78 and visualized using ggbio, GRanges and ggplot2 within R, . […]
