What is the difference between ENCODE Tier 1, 2 and 3 cell types?

The tiers denote the original priority of sequencing and processing the samples. This is understandable given the number of marks and experiment types that ENCODE tried to sequence. Further details ...

Given a transcription factor, what genes does it regulate?

In general, there is two options to identify targets for transcription factors: experimental (ChIP-seq) and sequence-based predictions. TF binding from experimental data The are multiple projects ...

Transcription factor targets for Human and Mouse genes

JASPAR is only based on TF motifs, which are very short sequences and not enough to precisely tell you the true TF-motif relationships, especially when multiple TFs have complex logic gates regulating ...

How to visualize genome track of gene in specific cell-lines?

Like others have mentioned, these plots come from BAM, BED, and BigWig files. Those files contain the data that you can give to tools like the UCSC Genome Browser, IGV, HiGlass/Gosling, or other ...

How to visualize genome track of gene in specific cell-lines?

Answer from @devon-ryan, converted from comments: You'll need BAM or bigWig files for each of the tracks. If you can't find any you'll have to make them yourself from public fastq files. The fastq ...

How to visualize genome track of gene in specific cell-lines?

You can use screen.encodeproject.org It collected a lot of data from multiple cell lines or tissues. And you can export tracks to UCSC browser or other browsers.
