Enhanced JBrowse plugins for epigenomics data visualization

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5921565
PMID: 29699480
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-018-2160-z

[…] ed, it is imperative that graphical tools such as genome browsers are able to properly visualize these specialized data sets. Current genome browsers such as UCSC genome browser [], AnnoJ [], IGV [], WashU EpiGenome Browser [], Epiviz [], IGB [], and JBrowse [], have limited capability to visualize these data sets effectively, hindering the visualization and potential discoveries with new sequenci […]


Maternal 5mCpG Imprints at the PARD6G AS1 and GCSAML Differentially Methylated Regions Are Decoupled From Parent of Origin Expression Effects in Multiple Human Tissues

Front Genet
PMCID: 5838017
PMID: 29545821
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00036

[…] Grid Visualization web resource (available at the Roadmap Epigenomics Browser from the NIH Roadmap Epigenomics Mapping Consortium Bernstein et al., ; Roadmap Epigenomics Consortium et al., ) and the WashU Epigenome Browser (Zhou et al., ) to analyze uniformly processed datasets. We also annotated the non-coding genome in the candidate iDMRs by computationally exploring integrative large-scale fun […]


MiR 93 5p Promotes Cell Proliferation through Down Regulating PPARGC1A in Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells by Bioinformatics Analysis and Experimental Verification

PMCID: 5793202
PMID: 29361788
DOI: 10.3390/genes9010051

[…] alculating the value of all the nodes that were carried out by Degree-sorted. For the ChIP-seq analysis, data was available from the GEO database (GSM935623 and GSM935628) and was visualized with the WashU EpiGenome Browser [,]. The immunofluorescence (IHC) results of PPARGC1A in HepG2 cells was obtained from The Human Protein Atlas database []. […]


Re analysis of public genetic data reveals a rare X chromosomal variant associated with type 2 diabetes

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5778074
PMID: 29358691
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-02380-9

[…] ls/haploreg/haploreg.php), in order to assess which type of regulatory element was associated with the rs146662075 variant.To further evaluate the putative regulatory role of rs146662075, we used the WashU EpiGenome Browser (http://epigenomegateway.wustl.edu/browser/, last access on June 2016). We used the following public data hubs: (1) the reference human epigenomes from the Roadmap Epigenomics […]

[…] .05 -B --SPMR --call-summits”. Then, the designed bait sequences for the enhancer anchor were used to select the target PETs and clusters for each 4C-seq library, which were further visualized by the WashU Epigenome Browser. […]


ANISEED 2017: extending the integrated ascidian database to the exploration and evolutionary comparison of genome scale datasets

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5753386
PMID: 29149270
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx1108

[…] ANISEED 2015 featured Gbrowse 2.0 () genome browsers, which showed limitations as the size of the dataset increased. The WashU Epigenome browser () was selected as a replacement and adapted with the help of its developer. It offers increased speed and the ability to represent genome-wide chromatin interaction data (). W […]
