Detection of hyper conserved regions in hepatitis B virus X gene potentially useful for gene therapy

PMCID: 5960815
DOI: 10.3748/wjg.v24.i19.2095

[…] of 1 (nt or aa). For each window, the analysis computes the mean IC of each position within the window. In addition, the results are represented as sequence logos created using the R language package motifStack[].The bioinformatics methods used in this study were reviewed by Dr. Josep Gregori from the Liver Disease-Viral Hepatitis Laboratory of Vall d’Hebron Hospital (Barcelona, Spain), CIBERehd r […]


ATACseqQC: a Bioconductor package for post alignment quality assessment of ATAC seq data

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5831847
PMID: 29490630
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4559-3

[…] ome package [, ] to search potential binding sites for a given DNA-binding protein, represent the matched genomic coordinates as GenomicRanges objects, and plot the motif as a sequence logo using the motifStack package []. The factorFootprints function first uses the matchPWM function to predict the binding sites with an input position weight matrix (PWM) for a DNA-binding protein. Next, it calcul […]


Analysis of hepatitis B virus preS1 variability and prevalence of the rs2296651 polymorphism in a Spanish population

PMCID: 5807671
PMID: 29456407
DOI: 10.3748/wjg.v24.i6.680

[…] aa = log2 (20)- 4.322 = 0. These calculations in the regions of NTCP interaction (47 aa) and virion morphogenesis (22 aa) were also represented as sequence logos created using the R language package, motifStack[].The statistical and bioinformatics methods used in this study were reviewed by Dr. Josep Gregori from the liver disease-viral hepatitis laboratory (Vall d’Hebron Institut Recerca-Hospital […]


Abundant expression of somatic transposon derived piRNAs throughout Tribolium castaneum embryogenesis

Genome Biol
PMCID: 5613491
PMID: 28950880
DOI: 10.1186/s13059-017-1304-1

[…] strand, reads were split equally between the possible targets.Nucleotide frequencies of piRNA reads at each position were calculated using a custom script, and sequence logos were plotted using the “motifStack” R package.Ping-pong signatures were calculated following the procedure described in []. In brief, we extracted 25–35-nt sense–antisense read pairs and calculated the number of overlapping […]


Transcription factor Hlx controls a systematic switch from white to brown fat through Prdm16 mediated co activation
