fluff 2.1.4

fluff is a software package that allows for simple exploration, clustering and visualization of high-throughput sequencing experiments mapped to a reference genome. The package contains three command-line tools to generate publication-quality figures:

  • heatmap: clustering and visualization in a heatmap
  • bandplot: visualization of average profiles of clustered data in small multiples
  • profile: creating genome browser-like genomic profiles

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load apps/fluff/2.1.4-python-2.7.11

An example command to include in your job script:

fluff <command> <command_options>

where <command> is either heatmap, bandplot, profile.

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.
