Hello biostar community,

I was just wondering if it is possible to have VEP report regulatory region in melanoma or melanocyte specific cell line? I tried to list the avaialble celltypes in vep96, however none of above mentioned celllines were there

Those are the cell types Ensembl has regulatory data for, so those are the only ones you will get information about in VEP.

I am not very familiar with the regulatory Ensembl build, however here they list the sources they used in the build, which includes melanocyte cell line (foreskin melanocyte) from Roadmap epigenomics. How come this is not on the list? How is the --regulatory flag connected to the regulatory build?

Thank you very much in advance!

Are you using GRCh37 or GRCh38?

Hello Emily, We are using GRCh38

How did you get that list? When I run the VEP with --cell_type list I get:

A549,A673,B,B_(PB),CD14+_monocyte_(PB),CD14+_monocyte_1,CD4+_CD25+_ab_Treg_(PB),CD4+_ab_T,CD4+_ab_T_(PB)_1,CD4+_ab_T_(PB)_2,CD4+_ab_T_(Th),CD4+_ab_T_(VB),CD8+_ab_T_(CB),CD8+_ab_T_(PB),CMP_CD4+_1,CMP_CD4+_2,CMP_CD4+_3,CM_CD4+_ab_T_(VB),DND-41,EB_(CB),EM_CD4+_ab_T_(PB),EM_CD8+_ab_T_(VB),EPC_(VB),GM12878,H1-hESC_2,H1-hESC_3,H9_1,HCT116,HSMM,HUES48,HUES6,HUES64,HUVEC,HUVEC-prol_(CB),HeLa-S3,HepG2,K562,M0_(CB),M0_(VB),M1_(CB),M1_(VB),M2_(CB),M2_(VB),MCF-7,MM.1S,MSC,MSC_(VB),NHLF,NK_(PB),NPC_1,NPC_2,NPC_3,PC-3,PC-9,SK-N.,T_(PB),Th17,UCSF-4,adrenal_gland,aorta,astrocyte,bipolar_neuron,brain_1,cardiac_muscle,dermal_fibroblast,endodermal,eosinophil_(VB),esophagus,foreskin_fibroblast_2,foreskin_keratinocyte_1,foreskin_keratinocyte_2,foreskin_melanocyte_1,foreskin_melanocyte_2,germinal_matrix,heart,hepatocyte,iPS-15b,iPS-20b,iPS_DF_19.11,iPS_DF_6.9,keratinocyte,kidney,large_intestine,left_ventricle,leg_muscle,lung_1,lung_2,mammary_epithelial_1,mammary_epithelial_2,mammary_myoepithelial,monocyte_(CB),monocyte_(VB),mononuclear_(PB),myotube,naive_B_(VB),neuron,neurosphere_(C),neurosphere_(GE),neutro_myelocyte,neutrophil_(CB),neutrophil_(VB),osteoblast,ovary,pancreas,placenta,psoas_muscle,right_atrium,right_ventricle,sigmoid_colon,small_intestine_1,small_intestine_2,spleen,stomach_1,stomach_2,thymus_1,thymus_2,trophoblast,trunk_muscle


As you can see, a number of "melanocyte" cells are in there.

I am using vep96 and it's not there, probably this is from the newer version. I will try to update my cache file. Thank you very much for the help!
