[…] the rbp and its target rna. several peak calling programs have been developed and include piranha [], clipper [], pipe-clip [], pyicos [] that work with all clip variants, and paralyzer [] and wavcluster that are specifically developed for par-clip analysis. for more details on the statistical models underlying these programs, we refer the readers to detailed reviews on this topic [, […]

[…] distribution profiles through enhancing the signal-to-noise ratio and decreasing the false-positive rate. data analysis methods developed for this purpose include pipe-clip, paralyzer, piranha, wavcluster, and dclip. the next downstream of the pipeline is the motif discovery, higher level structure prediction, and functional characterization. previously developed tools for dna and protein […]

[…] with a length above a certain threshold are considered for further analysis to detect rbp binding sites. rbp binding site detection is a challenging process. several computational methods such as wavcluster, paralyzer, piranha, pipe-clip, dclip, and graphprot have been developed and utilized to detect rbp binding sites while minimizing the detection of false positives and background. […]

[…] of a sufficient number of cims or par-clip transitions in each cluster reduced the number of false hits. a number of sophisticated algorithms have been developed, e.g. paralyzer [], piranha [], wavcluster [], ripseeker [], miclip [], pipe-clip [] and the pyicoclip module of the pyicoteo toolkit (previously called pyicos) []. while different in implementation, all these procedures […]

[…] sites. low mutant tag ratios in some experiments could be problematic for bioinformatics pipelines for analyzing hits-clip and par-clip data that utilize mutation ratios, such as miclip () and wavcluster (). on the other hand, there may be a small number of bases covered by clip clusters that show close to 100% mutant rates, which are likely snps in the cell lines or tissue samples instead […]
