[…] and averaged between replicates. smoothed signals showed a correlation of 0.75–0.87 between replicates. all analyses were carried out in r version 3.1.0. raw microarray data was analysed using the starr 1.18.1 package. nonparametric regression was done using the lowess smoothing function in r., chip-chip data for dna gyrase binding to genes in exponential phase was taken from jeong et al. […]

[…] (pearson correlation) also identified rb_ns12.cel as an outlier. rb_aw10.cel and rb_ns12.cel were removed from subsequent analyses. probe remapping to ncbi build 37 (mm9) was performed using the starr r package (). inputs to starr for remapping were the probe mappings for the affymetrix promoter 1.0r array and all chromosomes from the ncbi build 37 (mm9) in fasta format downloaded […]

[…] and custom r scripting packages were used for the metagene analysis, scatterplot generation and k-means clustering. the ‘simple tiling array analysis of affymetrix chip-chip data’ (starr, ) was also used to analyse the rna pol ii chip-chip data., all the biogro samples were normalized against genomic dna (yjm789 strain) hybridized into the same custom affymetrix arrays (as […]

[…] specifications, and arrays were scanned using a genechip scanner 3000 7g (affymetrix). each chip-chip experiment was performed in duplicate. chip-chip data were analyzed using bioconductor package starr, for data read-in, normalizing and peak calling. quantile normalization was applied to normalize probe intensity before peak calling with default settings except that fragment length […]

[…] amplification, and chromatin and ip were separately hybridized to affymetrix drosophila tiling 2.0r arrays. the ip to chromatin ratios were computationally determined after normalisation using the starr package , and peaks identified as above, except that smoothing was over 5 probes., genes were associated to peaks if any gene feature occurred within 1 kb upstream or downstream […]
