This track shows the location of sites showing transcription over the first 24 hours of D. melanogaster development in two hour increments, measured by a tiling array as described in Manak et al. (2006) (see References). Clustered sites are shown in separate subtracks for each of the twelve timepoints.

Display Conventions and Configuration

To show only selected subtracks, uncheck the boxes next to the tracks that you wish to hide.

Color differences among the subtracks are arbitrary. They provide a visual cue for distinguishing between the different timepoints.


The data were processed into signal and transfrags as described in Cheng et al. (2005) and Kampa et al. (2004). The data from replicate arrays were quantile-normalized and all arrays were scaled to a median array intensity of 25. Within a sliding 101 bp window centered on each probe, an estimate of RNA abundance (signal) was found by calculating the median of all pairwise average PM-MM values, where PM is a perfect match and MM is a mismatch. This data set was originally created for dm2(BDGP R4) and then lifted over to dm3(BDGP R5).


Samples were hybridized to duplicate arrays (three technical replicates). Transcribed regions (see the Affy Signal track) were generated from the composite signal track by merging genomic positions to which probes are mapped. This merging was based on a 5% false positive rate cutoff in negative bacterial controls, a maximum gap (MaxGap) of 50 base-pairs and minimum run (MinRun) of 90 base-pairs.


These data were generated and analyzed by the Tom Gingeras group at Affymetrix.
