Systematic functional perturbations uncover a prognostic genetic network driving human breast cancer

PMCID: 5400527
PMID: 28411283
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.16244
call_split See protocol

[…] h allows for a sensitive and robust prediction of peaks. The IGV browser [] was used to visually check called peaks and produce the ChIP-Seq traces in Figure and . Peaks were assigned to genes using PeakAnnotator in the PeakAnalyzer package where positive genes were determined by the presence of a peak in a -2kb and +2.5Kb window around the transcription start site (TSS) []. The Venn diagrams of […]


Integrated epigenomic analyses of enhancer as well as promoter regions in gastric cancer

PMCID: 5041931
PMID: 27016420
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.8239

[…] e-end reads. The sequencing reads were also aligned to the reference sequence (hg 19) using the BWA software. The results generated by MACS (v.1.4.2) [] were loaded into the IGV for visualization []. PeakAnnotator from Homer (v 4.7) was used to annotate each peak. All ChIP sequencing data were deposited in the public repository (GEO Accession Number: GSE75595). Bam files were available at http://m […]

[…] g the Galaxy tool Intercept version 1.0.0 ( The complete Sfl1p and Sfl2p binding and expression datasets are provided in Tables S1–S8 in . The command line version of the PeakAnnotator (v 1.4) sub-package from the PeakAnalyzer suite of algorithms was used to annotate the Sfl1p and Sfl2p binding peaks in Tables S1, S2, S4 and S5 in . The association of peaks to target […]
