"Towards Predictive R-loop Computational Biology: Genome-Scale Prediction of R-loops Reveals Their association with Complex Promoter Structures, G-Quadruplexes and Transcriptionally Active Enhancers"

Published date : 26 Jun 2018

R-loops are three-stranded RNA:DNA hybrid structures essential for many normal and pathobiological processes. Previously, we generated a quantitative R-loop forming sequence (RLFS) model, quantitative model of R-loop-forming sequences (QmRLFS) and predicted ∼660 000 RLFSs; most of them located in genes and gene-flanking regions, G-rich regions and disease-associated genomic loci in the human genome. Here, we conducted a comprehensive comparative analysis of these RLFSs using experimental data and demonstrated the high performance of QmRLFS predictions on the nucleotide and genome scales.
