  • Effective genome sizes for peak calling

    Apologies to anyone who also received this message via the MACS google group!

    MACS requires the effective or mappable genome size for the reference genome used to map the NGS reads. What are people using for Drosophila melanogaster (DM3)?

    I currently have this information for the following genomes:

    Human (hg18) = 2700000000
    - from MACS manual

    Mouse (mm9) = 1865500000
    - from MACS announcement (based on 70% of the whole genome size)

    Yeast (sacCer?) = 12100000
    - from MACS announcement

    If anyone has this information for other genomes perhaps you would like to post them here?

    Thanks,
    Ian

    Thanks to Marco-Antonio MENDOZA-PARRA who replied to my MACS announcment posting:

    "...I would recommend to use the table that has published in the Peak-seq paper where they estimate a mappable genome size of 121,40 Mbs (72% total genome) for Drosophila Melanogaster."

    The paper in question can be found at PubMed: 19122651.

    Drosophila (dm3?) = 121400000

      The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
      by seqadmin



      Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

      Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
      by seqadmin


      New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

      A major leap in the field has
