Computational genomics course in Berlin: Bisulfite-sequencing and data integration

January 17, 2018 | 0 Comments

Bioinformatics platform at Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology has been organizing computational genomics courses in Berlin since 2015. This year we will focus on bisulfite sequencing analysis and genomics data integration.The course will cover the following:1) bisulfite-seq analysis (alignment, QC, differential methylation, segmentation)2) integrating and visualizing processed genomics data. ...

Poster/cheatsheet for R/BioC package genomation

October 31, 2016 | 0 Comments

We prepared a poster/cheatsheet for the bioconductor package genomation, which is a package for summary and annotation of genomic intervals. Users can visualize and quantify genomic intervals over pre-defined functional regions, such as promoters, exons, introns, etc. The genomic intervals represent regions with a defined chromosome position, which may ...

Annotating sets of genomic intervals with genomic annotations such as chromHMM

August 12, 2016 | 0 Comments

Annotating sets of genomic intervals with genomic annotations such as chromHMM Genomation is an R package to summarize, annotate and visualize genomic intervals. It contains a collection of tools for visualizing and analyzing genome-wide data sets, i.e. RNA-seq, bisulfite sequencing or chromatin-immunoprecipitation followed by sequencing (ChIP-seq) data.Recently we ...

This is a short tutorial on knitr/markdown and JS visualization packages googleVis and rCharts. With these packages you can create web pages with interactive visualizations just using R. This will require minimal or no knowledge of HTML ... [Read more...]

EpiWorkshop 2013: DNA methylation analysis in R

March 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

Elemento Lab at Weill Cornell Medical College organized a workshop on Epigenomics. I had the opportunity to give a tutorial on DNA methylation analysis in R. The tutorial demonstrates how to analyze high-throughput bisulfite sequencing d... [Read more...]

Updating R but keeping your installed packages

June 28, 2012 | 0 Comments

This is probably an issue that has been addressed by many blog posts (including these ones: [link1] and [link2]), and can be deduced from R Installation and Administration manual. However, I will post it here for future reference. The problem is that w... [Read more...]

DNA methylation (RRBS or target capture) analysis with R

February 20, 2012 | 0 Comments

Reduced Representation Bisulfite sequencing (RRBS) is a popular technique for measuring methylation levels across genome. Although it does not have the full genome coverage, it covers many important regions for methylation. Below, I shared a tutorial a... [Read more...]

methylKit: R package for DNA methylation analysis

December 21, 2011 | 0 Comments

High-throughput bisulfite sequencing based methods are popular for measuring genome-wide DNA methylation levels. Here is an R package that helps with the analysis of such DNA methylation data. Although, it is still under heavy development current funct... [Read more...]

knitr: nice alternative for Sweave

December 17, 2011 | 0 Comments

I recently discovered knitr for dynamic report generation in R. It seems like a very powerful alternative to Sweave. Particularly, I am interested in png graphic device support (it supports more than 20 graphic devices) and R code formatting.Check it o... [Read more...]
