Comment: C: two factor chip with diffbind and edgeR (or DESeq2).
... Hi, One way to use input controls is via the GreyListChIP Bioconductor package.  It uses input controls to identify regions of the genome with high coverage in the input, which tend to confuse peak callers and produce a lot of spurious peaks.  You use the inputs to identify these regions, then remo ...

Comment: C: DiffBind error with dba.count after update
... Hi, Your question is slightly confusing.  My previous comment specifically says I've commited a fix, and what version it is.  The windows devel build is failing due do dependencies, as are many other packages; nothing I can do about that.  But release is fine.  Are you still seeing errors with 2.6. ...

Comment: C: Using HOMER called peaks in DiffBind
... Note also that in "factor" mode, HOMER produces fixed-width peaks.  For very strong peaks, that may mean that most of the reads are outside the range of the called peak (e.g. it gives you 200bp wide peaks, but the bulk of reads in a very strong peak might be more than 100bp from the centre).  If you ...

Comment: C: Inconsistent peak width with DiffBind "summit" function
... Sometime, when we have some spare time (haha!) we should consider using PeakSplitter or similar to split distinct but nearby peaks, rather than discarding all but one.  It (probably) wouldn't be that hard to write a wrapper R package around PeakSplitter's C++ core... I'll see what Mali (the author) ...

Answer: A: Analyzing data without replicates using DiffBind
... The second most-hated question among statistical and/or computational people (the first being do I need replicates?). How many replicates you need depends on two parameters: 1) What effect size are you trying to detect, between the experimental groups?  (For example, is a fold change of 10:1 all y ...

Answer: A: Analyzing data without replicates using DiffBind
... Hi, Without replicates, you cannot hope to test meaningfully for statistically significant differences, with DiffBind or anything else. The DiffBind vignette describes two approaches to analysis.  You might look into an "occupancy" analysis, which allows you to, for example, draw Venn diagrams sho ...

Comment: C: DiffBind error with dba.count after update
... Hi, Yes, it's broken.  I'll check in a fix ASAP. The rules for registering native routines were tightened up a bit, and the one used by dba.count wasn't (isn't) registered properly.  I'l. post as soon as I check in the fix.  Sorry about that. ...
