PMID: 28325297
DOI: 10.1016/j.omtn.2017.02.002

[…] single site. to improve data quality, we discarded all sites supported by less than ten reads. the sequence logos for the nucleotide composition around the integration sites were generated with the seqlogo package in r. to compute the representation of the insertion sites in various annotated segments of the human genome, databases for various genomic features were downloaded from the ucsc […]

PMID: 25001002
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms5370

[…] a nucleotide position weight matrix (pwm), and pwms from adjacent subarrays were merged assuming equal weight at overlapping positions. sequence logo plots were then generated using ggplot and seqlogo., to make a comprehensive dataset of known primate prdm9 zinc finger sequences, we combined the zfs sequenced in our study with those from berg et. al., auton et. al., and groeneveld et. al. […]

DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23342-1

[…] from a variant sequence were compared with those from a reference sequence. sequence logos for the position weight matrix of the binding consensus were created from transfac matrices using r library seqlogo., the rna-seq v2 data and clinical information of tcga lung adenocarcinoma (tcga-luad) was downloaded from the nci genomic data commons using tcga-assembler v2.0.1 (the data were downloaded […]
