Bionformatics Tools for Genome-Wide Dataset Analyses

TETRAMER provides an interative approach to interrogate the capacity of each TF - retrieved on reconstructed GRN to drive cell fate transitions. For it, the temporal transcriptional regulation cascade derived from each TF is scrutinized as a way to verify its influence on the reconstitution of the differential gene expression patterns associated to the cell fate transition.

MeDiChI-seq is a regression-based method for peak detection in the context of profiling of protein-chromatin interaction patterns. As the first step MeDiChI computes a model of multiple binding events present in a particular ChIP-seq profile. Likely binding events are then identified by comparison of particular peak with the model. Predicted binding events are further characterized in the context of their significance by the non-parametric bootstrapping statistical approach.

Comparative analysis between ChIP-seq and other NGS datasets requires prior characterization of their degree of technical similarity. NGS Q/C Generator infer Quality indicators from the distribution of sequenced reads associated to a particular NGS profile. Such information is then used for comparative purposes and for defining strategies aiming to improve the quality of the sample-derived datasets.
