    Genome-wide mapping of transcriptional enhancer candidates using DNA and chromatin features in maize

    While most cells in multicellular organisms carry the same genetic information, in each cell type only a subset of genes is being transcribed. Such differentiation in gene expression depends, for a large part,...

    Characterization of background noise in capture-based targeted sequencing data

    Targeted deep sequencing is increasingly used to detect low-allelic fraction variants; it is therefore essential that errors that constitute baseline noise and impose a practical limit on detection are charact...

    Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus emerged long before the introduction of methicillin into clinical practice

    The spread of drug-resistant bacterial pathogens poses a major threat to global health. It is widely recognised that the widespread use of antibiotics has generated selective pressures that have driven the eme...

    MAPK-triggered chromatin reprogramming by histone deacetylase in plant innate immunity

    Microbial-associated molecular patterns activate several MAP kinases, which are major regulators of the innate immune response in Arabidopsis thaliana that induce large-scale changes in gene expression. Here, we ...

    Data normalization considerations for digital tumor dissection

    In a recently published article in Genome Biology, Li and colleagues introduced TIMER, a gene expression deconvolution approach for studying tumor-infiltrating leukocytes (TILs) in 23 cancer types profiled by The...

    Benchmarking: contexts and details matter

    Benchmarking is an essential step in the development of computational tools. We take this opportunity to pitch in our opinions on tool benchmarking, in light of two correspondence articles published in Genome Bio...

  7. Research

    Strong epistatic and additive effects of linked candidate SNPs for Drosophila pigmentation have implications for analysis of genome-wide association studies results

    The mapping resolution of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) is limited by historic recombination events and effects are often assigned to haplotype blocks rather than individual SNPs. It is not clear how ...

    NicE-seq: high resolution open chromatin profiling

    Open chromatin profiling integrates information across diverse regulatory elements to reveal the transcriptionally active genome. Tn5 transposase and DNase I sequencing-based methods prefer native or high cell...

    BRIE: transcriptome-wide splicing quantification in single cells

    Single-cell RNA-seq (scRNA-seq) provides a comprehensive measurement of stochasticity in transcription, but the limitations of the technology have prevented its application to dissect variability in RNA proces...

    Hi-C as a tool for precise detection and characterisation of chromosomal rearrangements and copy number variation in human tumours

    Chromosomal rearrangements occur constitutionally in the general population and somatically in the majority of cancers. Detection of balanced rearrangements, such as reciprocal translocations and inversions, i...

    Genetic–epigenetic interactions in cis: a major focus in the post-GWAS era

    Studies on genetic–epigenetic interactions, including the mapping of methylation quantitative trait loci (mQTLs) and haplotype-dependent allele-specific DNA methylation (hap-ASM), have become a major focus in ...
