  • MACS peaks

    Hi,

    Am using MACS for the first time. I ran MACS on my sequence data and I find peaks (as listed in the bed file) in regions that have no signal. Why would this be? Has anyone encountered this phenomenon before? Please suggest.

    Thanks in advance,
    Veena

    How did you check there's no signal in those regions?

      hi Dawe, All,

      I debugged the issue and found that it was basically an issue with the input file fed to MACS.
      I was running MACS on .sam files. The program used to generate signal
      files from .sam files excluded repeats (X:A:R tags), whereas MACS
      included the repeats in the .sam file. I now reran MACS using the bed
      files as input for MACS (instead of .sam files) and it looks fine
      now.

      Thanks,
      Veena

        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...
