PMID: 29712907
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-04130-x

[…] the overlap between the two was computed with custom r scripts using the package genomicranges., to compute the rates of contact decay, the raw hi-c reads were normalized in 50 kb windows using the tadbit pipeline with default parameters. the contact decays were estimated using a simple linear regression between the logarithm of the linear separation between the windows and the logarithm […]

[…] calling. for example, tadtool (as a python package) enables the direct export of tads called using a set of parameters for both directionality and insulation indices []. other tad callers, such as tadbit [], armatus [], and tadtree [], exhibit balanced performance for most parameters for experimental and simulated data. interaction callers, such as homer [] and hiccups, [,] yield the highest […]

[…] sizes larger than 150 nm obtained from chip-seq vs. microscopy imaging. changes in this threshold did not affect our main conclusions., hi-c data were processed using an in-house pipeline based on tadbit. first, the quality of the reads was checked using the quality_plot() function in tadbit, which is similar to the tests performed by the fastqc program with adaptations for hi-c data sets. […]

[…] software can also read and analyze 3c‐based interaction data by converting experimental reads into a tool‐specific hi‐c format, which can then be visualized using the juicebox browser . finally, the tadbit software can output complete experimental dataset in standard json format, which can then be imported and visualized using the tadkit 3d browser. importantly, data accessibility […]

PMCID: 5504709
PMID: 28693562
DOI: 10.1186/s13072-017-0142-4

[…] as a measure of the model quality, we used the spearman’s correlation coefficient between the modeled matrix of interactions and the experimental 5c matrix (additional file : figure s4). the tadbit program (https://github.com/3dgenomes/tadbit) was used for all calculations. chimera [] and pymol (the pymol molecular graphics system, version 1.7.4 schrodinger, llc), tools were used […]
