A web tool for super-enhancer associated regulatory analysis


We designed a novel web server, SEanalysis, which provides a comprehensive super-enhancers regulatory analysis, involving the identification of SE-associated genes, TFs occupying these SEs and the upstream signaling pathways of idenfitied TFs. Users can perform the following SEs-associated analyses in the web server:
I. Pathway downstream analysis.
II. Upstream regulatory analysis.
III. Genomic region annotation.

The current version of SEanalysis contains a total of 331,551 super-enhancers from over 500 types of cells/tissues, 5,042 TF ChIP-seq data generated from these cells/tissues, DNA-binding sequence motifs for 699 TFs as well as 2,880 pathways from ten databases. SEanalysis supports searching by either SEs, samples, TFs, signaling pathways or genes. Furthermore, the complex regulatory networks formed by these factors can be interactively visualized. In addition, we developed a custom genome browser using JBrowse providing more than 6,000 customizable tracks.
