I saw a similar post using ChIPQC package for ATAC-Seq peaks quality check but not answer

As I have a different setting than the above post, so I want to detail my problems and ask for help.

I want to use ChIPQC package to check the quality of H3K4me3 and H3K27ac ChIP-seq quality.


chipqc <- ChIPQC(experiment, 
                 annotation = "mm10", 
                 blacklist = "~/iris/genome/mouseGenomemm10/mm10.blacklist.bed",
                 chromosomes = "chr11")


When I ran the function ChIPQC, I got the following error:

"Error in names(res) <- c("Reads", "Map%", "Filt%", "Dup%", "ReadL", "FragL", : 'names' attribute [9] must be the same length as the vector [7]"

I continued to run the ChIPQCreport, the same error popped up, though some quality plots did manage to generate.

The CoverageHistogramPlot showed all the samples have certain coverage. However, the PeakProfile plot, two of my samples show no signal at all, which is rather strange because the igv shows enrichment.

(in case you can't see the image, the link is next to it.)



Random locus showing enrichment

Does anybody have some thoughts? Thanks in advance.

The problem is caused by single end data which would not return fragment length. I fixed it in my fork project. And I contacted the author and hope they will fix it in their next release.

Hi, I got the same problem. Thank you for the update and fixed it. I hope they will fix it in the new version.
