Welcome to Cistrome

The cistrome refers to "the set of cis-acting targets of a trans-acting factor on a genome-wide scale, also known as the in vivo genome-wide location of transcription factor binding-sites or histone modifications". Here we build integrative analysis pipelines (Cistrome) to help experimental biologists, and conduct efficient data integration to better mine the hidden biological insights from publicly available high throughput data.

Cistrome Analysis Pipeline

An integrative and reproducible bioinformatics data analysis platform based on Galaxy open source framework. Besides standard Galaxy functions, Cistrome has 29 ChIP-chip- and ChIP-seq-specific tools in three major categories, from preliminary peak calling and correlation analyses to downstream genome feature association, gene expression analyses, and motif discovery.

Cistrome Data Browser

A new portal to browser public ChIP-seq and DNase-seq datasets. Besides providing a comprehensive knowledgebase of all of the publicly available ChIP-Seq and DNase-Seq data in mouse and human, it also provides functions to analysis and visualize these datasets.

Cistrome Chromatin Regulator

A knowledgebase on chromatin modifying enzymes and chromatin remodelers. All the chromatin regulators (CR) which possess ChIP-seq data are divided into four categories: reader, writer, eraser and remodeler. Then their basic information and their ChIP-seq data are collected and analysed.

Nuclear Receptor Cistrome DB

A curated database of 88 nuclear receptor cistrome data sets and other associated high-throughput data sets including 121 collaborating factor cistromes, 94 epigenomes, and 319 transcriptomes. All the ChIP_chip/seq peak regions are annotated with enriched HRE and co-regulator motifs. A list of predicted hormone response genes from integration of nuclear receptor ChIP_chip/seq data and differential expression data is also readily available to the users.

CaSNP is a comprehensive collection of copy number alteration (CNA) from SNP arrays. It collects 11,485 Affymetrix SNP arrays of 34 different cancer types in 105 studies to profile the genome-wide CNA and SNP in each. This includes all the cancer SNP profiles using Affymetrix SNP arrays (10K to 6.0) with raw data from GEO, with additional arrays from the TCGA consortium and a few individual publications.
