[…] have also been applied to this kind of signal. many statistical approaches such as poisson distributions (sissrs [], homer [], macs []), negative binomial distributions (zinba []), rank-statistics (w-chipeaks []), and cramér-von mises test (qeseq []) have been used. other approaches include clustering approach (sicer []), hidden markov models (chipdiff [], rseg []), tree shape statistics (tpic […]

[…] procedures, in [] the normalization is performed only on commonly enriched regions. a control experiment is often used to aid the detection of truly enriched regions (e.g. in peakseq [] and w-chipeaks []). however, overall, there is a shortage of formal definition of chip efficiency and a limited focus on how this affects the interpretation of the results and how this should be fully […]

[…] interacting regions, a publicly available [] chip-seq data of erα at the e2-treated and control condition in mcf7 cells was used. a total number of ~1,000 and ~12,047 peaks were called by using w-chipeaks [] in control and an e2 treated dataset, respectively. these peaks were used to examine the relationship between er occupancy and interaction frequency. the number of erα binding sites […]

[…] (), sicer () and sissrs (). for completeness, we added four algorithms to the comparative study that were not available when we designed the validation experiments: rseg (), swembl (), tpic () and w-chipeaks () (supplementary table s1a, b and supplementary notes a)., chip-seq datasets were analyzed with these 15 algorithms using the default or recommended settings. predicted events […]
