The following is a snippet of real-world BED data derived from ENCODE experiments. raw DNaseI hypersensitivity signal for the human K562 cell line (region chr21:33031165-33032485, assembly GRCh37/h19 and table wgEncodeUwDnaseK562RawRep1 from the UCSC Genome Browser).

What does the fifth column represent in the above mentioned snippet?

The following snippet was downloaded from Roadmap Epigenomics Project. Which colon separated value in the second snippet corresponds to the fifth column in the first snippet? I was unable to find the file description for both so kindly share your thoughts. Thanks in advance.

The fifth column is the signal intensity. Just plot it and it will look like a wave, with peaks where DNaseI hypersensitivity signal for the human K562 cell-line was observed. The format is bedgraph.

Alright thanks for that. Does the second snippet contain signal intensity too?

Please show the exact source of the download. Did you look at the FAQ at the source website?

Please provide the exact location from where you downloaded the second file... and also the file's name. There are 100s of files accessible via the URL to which you pointed, and I unfortunately just don't have the ability to read your mind.

In addition, it looks like a malformed BED file because it is missing a column between the penultimate and final column.

Take a look here: A: histone mark data from roadmap epigenomics

I've downloaded multiple files and all of them are having similar columns. I don't think that they're malformed. Second thoughts?

Hey, please check the other link that I posted ( A: histone mark data from roadmap epigenomics ). I do not think that you need this second file - those RoadMap files seem to relate to the raw reads and do not contain information on signal intensity. It is the first file that is more important.

If there is still some confusion, better to email the RoadMap team directly.
