These tracks show the consensus clusters and the interquantile widths of the promoters based on CAGE data for exosome-depleted and control samples from D. melanogaster S2 cells. The CAGE datasets were obtained from the NCBI Sequence Read Archive database under the accession number SRP131270.


Each dataset was mapped to the D. melanogaster release 6 assembly using bwa with default parameters. The alignment results were analyzed by CAGEr. The tag counts were normalized by the normalizeTagCount function in CAGEr with the following parameters:

method = "powerLaw", fitInRange = c(500, 50000), alpha = 1.07, T = 1*10^6

The promoter widths were determined by the cumulativeCTSSdistribution and quantilePositions functions in CAGEr using the following parameters:

clusters = "tagClusters", qLow = 0.1, qUp = 0.9

The self-organizing maps (SOM) consensus clusters were determined by the consensusClusters and getExpressionProfiles functions in CAGEr using the following parameters:

what = "consensusClusters", tpmThreshold = 10, nrPassThreshold = 1, method = "som", xDim = 3, yDim = 1

Display Conventions

For the tag clusters, the span of each feature corresponds to the promoter width. The thin box within each span corresponds to the interquantile width (qLow = 0.1 to qUp = 0.9) that captures 80% of the CAGE signal. The thicker box denotes the position within the promoter with the highest CAGE signal.

For the consensus clusters, the color of the feature corresponds to the relative expression levels of the exosome-depleted and control samples:

Cluster IDRelative ExpressionColor
0_0Higher expression levels in the exosome-depleted sample than control
1_0Similar expression levels in the exosome-depleted and control samples
2_0Lower expression levels in the exosome-depleted sample than control
