International Research Team Develops Pipeline for Methylation Analysis


A research paper that was published in GigaScience, talks about a newly developed pipeline (SMAP) from researchers from Aarhus University Hospital that processes and analyzes data from reduced representation and whole-genome bisulphite sequencing procedures. Because the SMAP incorporates a mechanism for accounting for overlap in paired-end reads which can bias DMR detection and result in false positives, there is considerable improvement in how data is analogized using existing methods.

The paper also explains how the pipeline supports multiple user-defined restriction enzymes, and it runs all methylation analyses in a single-step operation. To read more about this new research and SMAP and the accompanied published paper, you can click here…
