You can try DigMap system can detect differential regions based on either expression array or CGH array Andrew -----Original Message----- From: [] On Behalf Of Sean Davis Sent: Tuesday, March 29, 2005 3:15 PM To: jeffrey rasmussen Cc: Subject: Re: [BioC] Detecting overrepresented genomic loci You might look at GLAD, DNAcopy, and aCGH as possibilities, but this isn't exactly what you want, I suppose given that you have a set of differentially expressed genes already. Another tact is to look at something like WebGestalt (online tool). It allows you to give a set of genes as input and can plot where these genes are on the genome. Finally, you could use something like Fisher exact test by region or chromosome arm to determine the "significance" of clustering by region but this would require some coding on your part.
