RamseyHAc 2010 – Prediction of Mammalian Transcription Factor Binding Sites

RamseyHAc 2010


RamseyHAc (Histone acetylation) is a package of MATLAB M-files and data files is provided. The data files contain the feature tracks used for predicting TF binding sites, and the “ground truth” binding location data used to train the prediction model (both in MATLAB “.mat” file format). Also included is the file “GenomeRegions.bed” (in UCSC BED format) which describes the genome regions analyzed in this study. The M-files are the functions used to predict transcription factor binding, train the prediction model, and test the prediction model in a cross-validation framework.
