CHiCAGO is part of Bioconductor 3.3 release

The Chicago and PCHiCdata R packages are now part of the new Bioconductor release (3.3).

Their stable versions are now available here:

http://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/Chicago.html
http://bioconductor.org/packages/release/data/experiment/html/PCHiCdata.html

The chicagoTools scripts are not part of Bioconductor and will continue to be available from our Bitbucket repository:

https://bitbucket.org/chicagoTeam/chicago

As Bioconductor releases only happen twice a year, the Bitbucket repository will also continue to host the most recent versions of the R packages.

Science and bubble football

Our group retreat this year featured science discussions… and bubble football!

BubbleFootball

Both were a great success, despite the few bruises (from football!) and the pouring rain (which is why it was impossible to take pictures at the pitch). The match has ended in a draw – as a true testament of our team spirit!

CHiCAGO is released!

We are finally ready to release CHiCAGO, our pipeline for Capture HiC analysis. Led by Jonathan, Paula and Mikhail, and a result of two years of work, this package features a new statistical model and a bespoke multiple testing procedure for calling significant interactions in these challenging data. A preprint describing the algorithm in detail will be available in the next few weeks, but the software and documentation are ready to use!
