[…] and all data is shown as a single donor representative of all 3, or as an average of all 3 donor results, as noted., the alignment bam files were used to identify regions of dna enrichment using the findpeaks peak finder/analysis software (v4.0.16; fejes et al., ). the default parameters were used to identify peaks enriched in the chip samples when compared to the input. the peaks […]

[…] tag count plus 3 (the rounded average median tag count within a bin for all chip-seq data), to reduce the effect of low input count in generating extreme ratios. format conversion was done using the vancouver short read analysis package ( the same procedure was done for all chip-seq data sets to obtain a vector of values for each protein or tf.

[…] to identify enrichment for curated gene-sets ( and oncomine ( to analyse gata2 expression in leukaemia datasets ., chip-seq peaks were identified using findpeaks 3.1 at fdr ≤0.05 and used to define 400 bp-regions centered around the highest point of significant peaks. non-redundant regions were scored by counting all 200 bp-extended reads within […]

[…] . this gave 18+6.5 million uniquely placed alignments at 23 million unique positions. each read was extended to 200 bases and overlap profiles were calculated to identify regions of enrichment. findpeaks 3.1.92 was used to estimate the false discovery rate (fdr), giving a probability of <0.001 at 15 overlapping fragments. peaks falling within 100 kb of centromeric gaps or overlapping […]

[…] note, the sacm1l gene used in this study and previous publications () contains a missense mutation y433f relative to the human genome reference sequence. however, the short genetic variations database (dbsnp) shows that this allele (rs1468542) represents approximately 60% of alleles present in the human population sampled to date. this allele can therefore be viewed […]
