Exploratory analysis of genomic segmentations with Segtools

Orion J Buske, Michael M Hoffman, Nadia Ponts, Karine G Le Roch, William Noble
2011 BMC Bioinformatics  
Results: We present a software toolkit called Segtools that simplifies and automates the exploration of genomic segmentations.  ...  Conclusions: Segtools provides a convenient, powerful means of interpreting a genomic segmentation. Authors' contributions MMH and WSN conceived of and supervised the project.  ...  This work was funded by the National Institutes of Health [HG004695].  ...

Buske and Hoffman et al. [45] developed a tool for exploratory analysis of genomic segmentations.  ...  They introduced a command-line tool "HMMSeg" for unsupervised segmentation of the genome.  ... 

Computational studies in epigenomics using histone modification data

Nishanth Ulhas Nair
With immense gratitude I thank Amma and Achhan for all that they have done for me and for being my parents. My brother Nitin has always been my well-wisher.  ...  Sriram Sankararaman has been a constant source of inspiration for me, and it was partly because of him that I chose to pick computational biology as my area of research.  ...  The short segments of DNA are treated with a specific antibody to capture a particular histone modification in the genome. The rest of the fragments are washed away.  ...
