Software from our Lab

Here we present an accessible, interactive GenePattern notebook for the analysis of copy number variation using Illumina Infinium DNA methylation arrays. The notebook provides a graphical user interface to a workflow using the R/Bioconductor packages minfi and conumee. The environment allows analysis to be performed without the installation of the R software environment, the packages and dependencies, and without the need to write or manipulate code.

GenePattern Module: MethylationCNVAnalysis

The package is focused on the detection of correlation between expressed genes and selected epigenomic signals i.e. enhancers obtained from ChIP-seq data within topologically associated domains (TADs). Various parameters can be controlled to investigate the influence of external factors and visualization plots are available for each analysis step.

qsea (quantitative sequencing enrichment analysis) was developed as the successor of the MEDIPS package for analyzing data derived from methylated DNA immunoprecipitation (MeDIP) experiments followed by sequencing (MeDIP-seq). However, qsea provides several functionalities for the analysis of other kinds of quantitative sequencing data (e.g. ChIP-seq, MBD-seq, CMS-seq and others) including calculation of differential enrichment between groups of samples.

MEDIPS was developed for analyzing data derived from methylated DNA immunoprecipitation (MeDIP) experiments followed by sequencing (MeDIP-seq). However, MEDIPS provides functionalities for the analysis of any kind of quantitative sequencing data (e.g. ChIP-seq, MBD-seq, CMS-seq and others) including calculation of differential coverage between groups of samples and saturation and correlation analysis.
