Hello,

I would like to see any chromosomal abberations in my samples and for that I want to plot moving average plots using expression values. Does anyone has any idea how to make one and what all tools I can use? Also how to find the positions of all the genes of a chromosome in humans? Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

Susmita

I imagine averaging signal across samples and then making bigWigs of the ratio between each sample and that would work to show what you want. You could then just look at it in IGV. Note that it can be difficult/impossible to detect chromosomal aberrations in standard RNA-seq datasets, since it's hard to distinguish that from some other cause of gene expression changes.

Can you explain this

Suppose you have samples A, B, and C. You would then make coverage tracks for each with bamCoverage or something similar then:

wiggletools mean A B C # I don't know the syntax for this off-hand, look it up

Then take the ratio of each sample to that:

bigwigCompare -b1 A.bw -b2 average.bigWig -o A_ratio.bw

Will it work if I want to check the ploidy of X chromsome in my samples. It's single cell RNA -Seq.
