atSNP implements the affinity test for large sets of SNP-motif interactions using the importance sampling algorithm. Users may identify SNPs that potentially may affect binding affinity of transcription factors. Given a set of SNPs and a library of motif position weight matrices (PWMs), atSNP provides two main functions for analyzing SNP effects: (i) the binding affinity score for each allele and each PWM and the p-values for allele-specific binding affinity scores (ii) the p-values for affinity score changes between the two alleles for each SNP. Compared to other bioinformatics tools that provide similar functionalities, atSNP is highly scalable.
The atSNP main functions are:
LoadMotifLibrary
- Load position weight matrices
LoadSNPData
- Load the SNP information and code the
genome sequences around the SNP locations
LoadFastaData
- Load the SNP data from fasta files
ComputeMotifScore
- Compute the scores for SNP effects on
motifs
ComputePValues
- Compute p-values for affinity scores
Some helper functions are:
MatchSubsequence
- Compute the matching subsequence
GetIUPACSequence
- Get the IUPAC sequence of a motif
dtMotifMatch
- Compute the augmented matching subsequence
on SNP and reference alleles
The composite logo plotting function is:
plotMotifMatch
- Plot sequence logos of the position
weight matrix of the motif and sequences of its corresponding best matching
augmented subsequence on the reference and SNP allele
