SeqGL in pipeline

PMID: 28881989
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx255

[…] tf binding. for example, in k-mer-based svm models, there can be a large number of very similar k-mer features that are all significant for the prediction task (). to deal with such difficulties, seqgl () and mil () similarly adopt a dml method (homer) to interpret their outputs, while gkmsvm () would cluster k-mers into pwms for further analysis, which could be viewed as a simplified version […]

[…] that are bound by specific tfs in a stage-specific manner. to identify dna motifs that could perform this function, we first performed an exhaustive de novo motif search using gimmemotifs and seqgl (; , ). these de novo predicted motifs were combined with previously predicted plasmodium motifs () and known vertebrate, invertebrate, and plant motifs from the cis-bp database (), yielding […]

[…] features associated with cell type-specific tf binding across two cell types, along with features shared by tf binding sites in both cell types. the group lasso based logistic regression classifier seqgl [] also implements a similar multi-task framework to identify features that are discriminative between two classes and features that are common to both. no existing discriminative feature […]

[…] pipeline with other motif discovery tools from two perspectives of revealing primary and cofactor binding motifs (). meme-chip was previously used to derive motifs for 457 chip-seq datasets () and seqgl () was used to analyze 105 datasets. among the sequence-specific tfs (n = 98) investigated by both tools, maskminent and meme-chip discovered primary motifs for 80 (∼81.6%) and 92 (∼93.9%) tfs, […]

[…] could predict expression changes of genes in cell state transitions from the dna sequence signals and lineage history of their active enhancers. to dissect sequence motifs in enhancers, we applied seqgl, a group lasso algorithm we developed to identify multiple dna signals de novo from dnase data using k-mer patterns. seqgl first computes a count matrix of occurrences of k-mers in dnase peak […]
