[…] rnas bound to mov10. the total number of reads was 98,884,367; the number of aligned reads was 71,522,027 (74.59% aligned), and the number of uniquely aligned reads was 57,005,129 (59.45%). we used ripseeker to identify rnas significantly enriched over input rna [] and found 2996 rip peaks: 1313 overlapped with repeat elements from the long terminal repeat (ltr) family, the autonomous non-ltr […]

[…] () packages. for a detailed step-by-step guide to using both of these packages see (). both deseq2 and edger can be used for dge analysis of rip-seq data. however, an alternative package called ripseeker has been developed recently that uses peak-calling, a strategy employed in chip-seq/clip-seq data analysis, and boasts better modeling accuracy than deseq2 and edger for rip-seq data ().

[…] q-values., pre-processing and read summarization of rip-seq data was carried out as described for the rna-seq data. for each animal (n = 3), a hur and igg1 sample was processed separately using the ripseeker [] algorithm, which is a de novo method for detecting peaks (indicating protein–rna interactions) based on hidden markov models (hmm). this is carried out in a multistage process whereby […]

[…] number of cims or par-clip transitions in each cluster reduced the number of false hits. a number of sophisticated algorithms have been developed, e.g. paralyzer [], piranha [], wavcluster [], ripseeker [], miclip [], pipe-clip [] and the pyicoclip module of the pyicoteo toolkit (previously called pyicos) []. while different in implementation, all these procedures can be summarized […]
