Dear all,

I have 9 bigwig files for which i computeMatrix over a single bed file (deeptools). Say they are replicates of the same experiment (3 replicates of condition1,2 and3). I can then draw a profile plot for all these 9 bw files over this bedfile with plotprofile --pergroup.

Is there a way to draw a plot with the same bed file but taking the mean of all 9 bw files? (i.e. to draw a single line representing all 9 bw files) Or say, taking the mean in groups of 3? ( condition1,2 and3)

without having to make a merged bigwig...

thanks..

There's no way to do that directly with deepTools, we usually just make big heatmaps.

You could get the data matrix with the underlying values for each bw file (--outFileNameMatrix). Then calculate the mean value for the respective sites and replicates. I dont know if it would be possible to visualize it back in deeptools then but you could visualize it in R for example.
