Multi-scale correlation evaluation (MCORE)


MCORE (Multi-scale CORrelation Evaluation) is a software for analyzing deep sequencing data sets. It uses the fluctuation spectrum of mapped sequencing reads to quantify and compare spatial patterns on multiple length scales in a model-independent manner. MCORE can be used to dissect the chromatin domain topology by integrating sequencing data from chromatin immunoprecipitation, RNA expression, DNA methylation and chromosome interaction experiments. Furthemore, it can be applied to construct network models that reflect the relationships among these features on different genomic scales. Details on MCORE can be found in the following preprint:
