ODIN-0.4.1 is released to overcome issues with the version of numpy (1.10.4), scipy (0.17.0), sklearn (0.17.1) and pysam (0.9.0). Moreover, ODIN is now available under the GPL v3 licence. ODIN-0.4.1 automatically copies the wigToBigWig tool into the PATH. We provide also some bug fixes:

  • change the foldchange to define a differential peak
  • filter differential peaks when option –no-correction is used

ODIN-0.4 provides some improvements:

  • improvement of the read size estimation,
  • input validation, if chromosome size file, genome file and BAM files contain the same chromosome names,
  • ODIN keeps lists of differential peaks (BED and narrowPeak) with non-corrected p-values (files have¬†-uncor in name),
  • improvement of the description of the –region parameter: whole analysis is done on the given regions; this includes in particular the HMM estimation,
  • small bugfix if ‘chr’ is missing in BAM files

Moreover, we are happy to announce THOR, an extension of ODIN dealing with technical and biological replicates.

ODIN-0.3.2 can now be run on Mac OS. Furthermore, we have fixed a small bug that occurs when analysing data where the corresponding input-DNA does not overlap. We have not added any further functionality to ODIN-0.3.2.


19th February 2015

We get rid of ODIN’s requirement to have a particular version of scikit installed. The maintainer of scikit swapped out their HMM implementation to the hmmlearn package. ODIN-0.3.1 has no additional functionality, but uses the HMM of hmmlearn instead of scikit.

ODIN-0.3 now performs a Benjamini/Hochberg p-value correction. You can use the option –no-correction to switch it off. We therefore increased the default p-value cutoff from 0.05 to 0.1. You can change this cutoff with the option -p.

You can now determine the working directory with the option –output-dir. All files generated by ODIN a stored in the desired folder.

We fixed a bug that appears in the fragment size calculation when using a BAM files where no DNA sequence is stored. Moreover, the option –bibtex gives the BibTeX entry of our paper.

With ODIN-0.2, I have fixed several bugs and implemented new features:

  • bugfix: merge differential peaks and filter p-value by predefined threshold
  • bugfix: peaks were shifted by 25bp
  • additionally output differential peaks in narrowPeak format
  • add more optional parameters with more informative descriptions, emphasize the ‘-m’ parameter for histone data
  • write more infos to *-setup.info
  • use other name for output signal: <experiment’s name>-<BAM filename>-normalized.bw

Furthermore, I have updated the website with information where ODIN’s parameters are described in our paper.
I have also created a googleGroup for ODIN.
