Understanding pathway-level regulation of chromatin marks with the "mitch" Bioconductor package (Epigenetics 2021 Conference Presentation)

Presented 18th February 2021



Abstract

Gene expression is governed by numerous chromatin modifications. Understanding these dynamics is critical to understanding human health and disease, but there are few software options for researchers looking to integrate multi-omics data at the level of pathways. To address this, we developed mitch, an R package for multi-contrast gene set enrichment analysis. It uses a rank-MANOVA statistical approach to identify sets of genes that exhibit joint enrichment across multiple contrasts. In this talk I will demonstrate using mitch and showcase its advanced visualisation features to explore the regulation of signaling and biochemical pathways at the chromatin level.
