findConservedTFBS: Find differentially methylated sites overlapping...

Description Usage Arguments Value

View source: R/transf.R

Description

Detects transcription factor binding sites that are conserved in human/mouse/rat alignments and overlap with the input data. A binding site is considered to be conserved across the alignment if its score meets the threshold score for its binding matrix in all three species. The score and threshold are computed with the Transfac Matrix Database (v7.0) created by Biobase. The data are purely computational, and as such not all binding sites listed here are biologically functional binding sites.

Usage

1
findConservedTFBS(bed.data, known.conserved.tfbs.file = NULL)

Arguments

bed.data

A data frame containing input bed-formatted data

known.conserved.tfbs.file

(optional) Full local path to the UCSC conserved transcription factor binding sites. If the table is not available locally then the script will fetch it from UCSC (Internet connection needed). NOTE: It is recommended to download the compressed file (Unzipped file >290MB)

Value

1/ Data frame containing overlaps between bed.data and conserved transcription factor binding sites

2/ Frequency table of conserved transcription factors on human genome (input to scatterConsTF function)

3/ A data frame with the number of conserved transcription factor binding sites per sequence (input to meinter function)
