  • SeqMonk

    Any one using SeqMonk to do ChIP seq analysis? I found it super easy to use and come with some handy analysis after peak generation, e.g. filter functions. But I don't know what's statistical model behind the peak calling. The program seems not published, so I wonder data generated with this program is acceptable by journals?

    I didn't even know it exists
    Looks nice, I'll try ASAP.

      SeqMonk (at least in it's current version) doesn't have a peak detection algorithm as such built in - although you can certainly use the quantitation tools for doing this kind of work.

      If your ChIP data is pretty clean with isolated clusters of sequences then you can use the contig probe generator to build probes over clusters of reads. We've used this successfully with traditional ChIP based experiments. The probe generation is not statistically based, but done simply from building contigs of overlapping reads.

      For ChIP samples which are much noisier and have reads over much of the genome you're normally better generating tiled probes over the whole genome and then using the window based filters to identify peaks.

      For identifying significant enrichments you can either use the distribution based filters or statistical filters such as the boxwhisker filter.

      As for why SeqMonk isn't published yet - well it's on my list of stuff to do (but it's far from alone on there!)

        A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
        by seqadmin

        ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

        Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
        by seqadmin
        Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

        The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
