Enhancer Networks
The Enhancer Networks page allows users to explore Open Chromatin Regions (promoters and enhancers) whose accessibility (activity) is associated with the searched gene. Different characteristics of these OCRs are presented in the windows.

1- OCRs associated with this gene:


Yoshida et al predicted which Open Chromatin Regions (OCRs) are associated with each gene, based on correlation between expressionof the gene and OCR activity. This reference table lists the OCRs associated with the searched gene and their genome location.
OCRs are ranked and color-coded according to their relative gene activity score (color coding conserved in each panel).

2- Genome position of these OCRs relative to the gene:


These OCRs are displayed at their chromosomal location, relative to the searched gene, on the JBrowse Genome Browser.

3- OCR activity in immune cells:


This heatmap presents the accessibility of the OCRs associated with the searched gene across all immune cell-types.

(1) Rollover the heatmap for details about cell-type and individual values.

4- Transcription Factors predicted to control these OCRs:


This panel displays transcriptions factors predicted to control the OCRs associated with the searched gene. All OCRs and predicted Transcriptions Factors are shown at first but can be refined according to the quality of the match of their binding site within the OCR (FIMO score), or by selecting TFs which are predicted to control two or more OCRs associated with the gene.
Colors indicate the score of the predicted connections, per 1.

Network parameters can be adjusted to show:
(1) Strong connections only (select a mimimum score on the slider).
(2) TFs whose binding is predicted in several OCRs.
Please note "Motif score" and "repetitive TF" filters act independently.
