Endothelial cell differentiation is encompassed by changes in long range interactions between inactive chromatin regions

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5829566
PMID: 29216379
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx1214

[…] residing in active compartments in HUVECs. Fold changes from 20 different random sets were pooled together for visualization. To analyze the enrichment of TFs binding to specific active compartments, regioneR software was used as described above, except that regions were divided to specific active compartments, all active compartments, all inactive compartments and specific inactive compartments. […]


Hit and run epigenetic editing prevents senescence entry in primary breast cells from healthy donors

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5684409
PMID: 29133799
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-01078-2

[…] and calculate significant DMRs. All downstream analysis was conducted using the hg19/GRCh37 human genome assembly. Annotation of DMRs and significant overlap at genomic features was calculated using regioneR (v. 1.8.0). PCA analysis was performed using DNA methylation data from all probes. […]


Maize RNA PolIV affects the expression of genes with nearby TE insertions and has a genome wide repressive impact on transcription

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 5639751
PMID: 29025411
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-017-1108-1

[…] 100 repetitions to get a statistical representation of the distribution of the “random” genes.The association between differentially expressed genes and TE was evaluated by permutation test using the regioneR R package v1.2.0 []. Up- and down-regulated genes were separated and for each group the distance from TE was compared to the average distance of the other genes in the genome by permutation t […]


Linker histone H1 prevents R loop accumulation and genome instability in heterochromatin

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5561251
PMID: 28819201
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-00338-5

[…] Peak location and coverage plots were generated with the htSeqTools package version 1.20.0. Permutation tests to assess enrichment of repeated elements among identified peaks were performed with the regioneR package version 1.2.3, using the UCSC dm3 RepeatMasker track (March 2017).For ChIP-qPCR, triplicates from two independent biological replicates were subjected to SYBR Green I-based real-time […]


A comprehensive custom panel design for routine hereditary cancer testing: preserving control, improving diagnostics and revealing a complex variation landscape

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5209725
PMID: 28051113
DOI: 10.1038/srep39348

[…] utationTaster, PROVEAN, CADD). All information, including coverage metrics, variants, variant quality estimators and annotations, was stored in a PostgreSQL database. Variants were filtered using the regioneR bioconductor package according to the clinical indication prior to generating the variant lists. The preliminary algorithm for exon-level copy-number estimation includes different normalizati […]


Systematic Profiling of Short Tandem Repeats in the Cattle Genome

Genome Biol Evol

[…] <10 were dropped here) (). To assess significance for the analyses of regions, we performed 10,000 times permutation tests to get empirical P-values for these overlaps using an R/Bioconductor package regioneR (). To further explore the selection characteristics of STRs, we employed the recently developed ksk method; ksk(20)2 values were estimated with window size 100,000 and step size 5000 as desc […]
