[Preprint] cinaR: A comprehensive R package for the differential analyses and functional interpretation of ATAC-seq data
Published in bioaRxiv, 2021
Summary ATAC-seq is a frequently used assay to study chromatin accessibility levels. Differential chromatin accessibility analyses between biological groups and functional interpretation of these differential regions are essential in ATAC-seq data analyses. Although distinct methods and analyses pipelines are developed for this purpose, a stand-alone R package that combines state-of-the art differential and functional enrichment analyses pipelines is missing. To fill this gap, we developed cinaR (Chromatin Analyses in R), which is a single wrapper function and provides users with various data analyses and visualization options, including functional enrichment analyses with gene sets curated from multiple sources.
