  • Quantifying ChIPseq signal for one sample

    Hey Everybody,

    I am trying to rank genes according to their phosphorylated CTD Pol II occupancy as a rough estimate of ongoing transcription.

    I am using ENCODE Pol2 ChIPseq data, which means I have access to called peaks, raw and wiggle files. I would like to ask you if it's generally a good strategy to quantify signal from bigWig file using bigWigAverageOverBed UCSC tool for all the human genes in given cell line. I avoided using called narrow peaks in this case, as I believe this would approximate the polymerase stalling better than the actual transcription.

    To assess this approach, I am correlating this quantified signal to RNAseq RPKM values from the same cell line and get Spearman correlation coefficient of around 0.62.

    Is there a better way to rank genes by their ChIPseq signal in a single sample?


    Thanks for any suggestions,
    K.

    Something along those lines should work. We normally use computeMatrix from deepTools for this sort of purpose, but if you only want a single value then bigWigAverageOverBed should give equivalent results.

      As always very helpful, Devon, I owe you few beers already

      Thanks for the tip!

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
