Hi Gil,
I have sent you the final version of Data Set S8 from the modENCODE integrative Drosophila paper. This data set lists 38,562 unique TFBSs (including the 1,962 HOT spots) derived from an integrated analysis of the TFBS distributions for 41 different TFs (see below). We calculated the complexity of TF binding at these 38,562 sites ("hotness") as follows. To eliminate the bias of longer range of high hotness HOTspots, we applied Gaussian kernel density estimation to calculate the contribution of every peak to a hotspot. The analysis excluded U, Y and *Het chromosomes. A hotspot is a single base which is then was extended to a region after using a cutoff to define the farthest contributed peak. The 6th column in this file is the density score ("complexity score") that reflects the hotness of a POINT. From this point the region was defined by identifying the contributing peaks. The 9th column of the file contains three parts split by ";".
(1) # of peaks physically overlapped with HOTspot POINT.
(2) # of peaks contributed to the HOTspot (only peaks with contribution >=0.1 was counted).
(3) the rest are ordered in: TF name, density of the middle point.
The 1,962 HOT spots are those sites with complexity score >=8. Please note that in this final version, we modified the calculation of hotness score a little bit to keep consistency with descriptions in the paper. The older version posted on the modENCODE website has not yet been updated, but I will make sure the dataset in the modENCODE website will be replaced shortly.
The HOT spot analysis represents an integration of the binding site calls for 41 individual TFs, which are listed as 41 GFF files in Data Set S7 of the modENCODE integrative Drosophila paper. This Data Set S8 consists of 25 TFs analyzed by modENCODE and 16 TFs analyzed by the BDTNP (Berkeley Drosophila Transcription Network Project). Where multiple data sets were available for the same factor, the peak calls (binding sites) for each data set were merged and the union was taken. Only ChIP experiments from embryonic material were used. The accessions/files used to generate each of the 41 TFBS files are listed at the end of this message. The genetic background, developmental stage, antibody and array platform are as described in the related accessions. In some cases, the peak calls listed in Data Set S7 were derived from alternative analyses of ChIP data that differ slightly from the updated modENCODE versions (the underlying raw data is the same); these data sets are marked by an asterisk in the list below. Data sets for the BDTNP factors (with FDR1 cutoff) were downloaded from UCSC Goldenpath, which is based on dm3 assembly, to keep consistency with modENCODE datasets. The download address is "" and the files used have the prefix "bdtnp".
