Genome Generator

The genomeGenerator is a Python tool generating individual-specific genome sequence and annotation files from a reference genome sequence, annotation and the individuals’ genetic variation information. It currently only works for haploid organisms.

Random Forest QTL Mapping

We compare legacy QTL mapping methods with several modern multivariate methods and evaluate their ability to produce eQTL that agree with independent external data in a systematic way. We also provide an R-package to facilitate QTL-mapping with Random Forest.

TF Target Gene Prediction

We have developed and compared different methods for predicting TF target genes using ChIP-seq data. We implemented all the methods that we tested in an unified R-package, thus providing a convenient tool for testing different methods on your own data.

ImAP

ImAP is a method to detect epistatic interactions based on the frequency of allele pairs in a population.The rationale is that incompatible alleles will occur less frequently than expected in a population. ImAP exploits the known family structure (parent-child trios) in order to improve the statistical power.

Network Propagation

Network propagation algorithm aids in inferring the altered sub-networks or signaling pathways in the given condition. We have noticed that standard network propagation suffered from gene-specific biases created by the connections in the network (‘topology bias’). Therefore, we devised an improved network propagation method that corrects for this topology bias.
