[…] a value of 0.9. peaks were annotated based on nearest transcription start site (tss) using the bioconductor package chippeakanno (zhu et al., ) and chipseeker (yu et al., ) and visualized using the gviz package (hahne and ivanek, )., the sp8 chipseq data presented in the “results” section were obtained using the goat polyclonal anti-sp8 antibody. these results were confirmed with a sp8 chipseq […]

[…] coverage tracks of atac signals we created normalized bigwig files using the homer v4.9.1 command makeucscfile with a specified fragment length of the exact read length and used the bioconductor gviz v1.20.0 package for visualization (). chromatin accessibility of degs was inferred by comparing log-transformed mean counts (cpm) of the accessible regions annotated to the respective genes […]

[…] (logfc) determined the differences between libraries (control, red and maternal nano-tio2 exposed, blue) within the mds plots (fig. ). to visualize read coverage, the r packages chippeakanno and gviz were installed []. complex, differential binding was assessed for both the h3k4me3 (fig. ) and h3k27me3 (fig. ) binding loci. together, these results suggest that the immunoprecipitation […]
