ML model for predicting ChIP-seq peaks in new cell types from ENCODE cell lines
Pipeline for predicting ChIP-seq peaks in novel cell types using chromatin accessibility.
Epitome leverages chromatin accessibility (either DNase-seq or ATAC-seq) to predict epigenetic events in a novel cell type of interest. Such epigenetic events include transcription factor binding sites and histone modifications. Epitome computes chromatin accessibility similarity between ENCODE cell types and the novel cell type, and uses this information to transfer known epigentic signal to the novel cell type of interest.

Setup and Installation
- Create and activate a conda environment:
conda create --name EpitomeEnv python=3.6 pip source activate EpitomeEnv
- Install Epitome:
pip install epitome
Training a Model
TODO: link to documentation
First, create an Epitome dataset that defines the cell types and ChIP-seq targets you want to train on,
from epitome.dataset import * targets = ['CTCF','RAD21','SMC3'] celltypes = ['K562', 'A549', 'GM12878'] dataset = EpitomeDataset(targets=targets, cells=celltypes)
Now, you can create and train your model:
from epitome.models import * model = EpitomeModel(dataset, test_celltypes = ["K562"]) model.train(5000) # train for 5000 batches
Evaluate a Model:
model.test(1000) # evaluate how well the model performs on a validation chromosome
Using Epitome on your own dataset:
Epitome can perform genome wide predictions or region specific predictions on a sample that has either DNase-seq or ATAC-seq.
To score specific regions:
chromatin_peak_file = ... # path to peak called ATAC-seq or DNase-seq in bed format regions_file = ... # path to bed file of regions to score results = model.score_peak_file([chromatin_peak_file], regions_file)
To score on the whole genome:
chromatin_peak_file = ... # path to peak called ATAC-seq or DNase-seq in bed format file_prefix = ... # file to save compressed numpy predictions to. model.score_whole_genome([chromatin_peak_file], file_prefix)
