Hello,

I'm now dealing with ChIP-Seq data to make heatmaps using deepTools 3.5.

In the process of "computeMatrix", I know I can add a dotted line to indicate the end of the regions by adding "--sortUsing region_length". However, is there anyway I can add a dotted line to the start of the regions?

Thank you very much for your help.

If you use --referencePoint center then you will get a dotted line on both ends (otherwise at least one end will be vertically aligned across genes, making such a guide line unnecessary).

Thanks for your comment. Actually I used "--referencePoint center" option, but it gave me a dotted line only on the end of the regions as explained in the deepTools homepage.

The command I used was like this:

computeMatrix reference-point --referencePoint center -b 1000 -a 1000 -bs 10 -R *.bed --missingDataAsZero --sortUsing region_length -S *.bw -o *.gz

The regions I used were already sorted by size, long regions at the bottom and short regions on the top in heatmap to make a mountain shape (because the reference point is the center of the regions).

But so far, by using the command above, I can only plot a dotted line on the end of the regions. (only the right side of the mountain)

Is there anyway to visualize the both ends of the regions in heatmap? Thanks.

You might check if there's a newer version. I recall implementing this in one of the later 3.4 releases. Perhaps this got broken in 3.5, in which case please make a bug report.
