  • Quantitative comparison between 2 IP ChIP-Seq samples, each with an input control.

    My initial question was how to quantitatively compare peaks from 2 ChIP samples, with accompanying inputs for each sample.
    macs2 bdgdiff allows one to take into account the inputs, but none of the other existing programs seem to allow this option.
    After doing research, the best option seems to just ignore the inputs, and compare the IP samples directly.

    According to the MMDiff authors:
    "Input correction is not necessary for differential peak calling as the local biases such as sequencing bias should affect all considered sample in the same way."

    I think that depends on what you are comparing. If you are comparing binding in different cell lines or in significantly different conditions, then you can indeed have sample-specific artifacts and ignoring the inputs will be the wrong thing to do.

    Shameless plug: Our MultiGPS software allows you to compare transcription factor binding across conditions in a principled way.

      One tool performing differential peak calling with replicates and supporting multiple input-DNA is THOR.

        My favorite tool for this kind of analysis is Diffbind. It requires peaks called for each individual replicate using the respective inputs and then generates a list of peaks which are statistically differentially bound (I believe it uses DESeq for this, but you can also switch to use EdgeR if you prefer). The good news is that the tutorial is very user-friendly and in depth and actually uses ERa ChiP Seq data from different cell types as a tutorial.

        Hope this helps

          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
