Welcome to the new bioconductor.org!


This is the development version of metagene; for the stable release version, see metagene.

A package to produce metagene plots

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

This package produces metagene plots to compare the behavior of DNA-interacting proteins at selected groups of genes/features. Bam files are used to increase the resolution. Multiple combination of group of bam files and/or group of genomic regions can be compared in a single analysis. Bootstraping analysis is used to compare the groups and locate regions with statistically different enrichment profiles.
