#HiCPlotter: Visualization of Hi-C data with genomic datasets

About HiCPlotter

HiCPlotter is a Python data visualization tool for integrating different data types with interaction matrixes. For more on 5C or Hi-C, please check: Dekker et al. 2013.

If you use HiCPlotter in your studies, please cite our publication in Genome Biology (http://www.genomebiology.com/2015/16/1/198)

HiCPlotter is designed by Kadir Akdemir (kcakedemir at mdanderson dot org / find me on Twitter) while in Lynda Chin's Lab at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA.

Requirements

Python 2.7.*

Numpy, Scipy, Matplotlib.

  • Please note: scipy, numpy and matplotlib modules should be installed and updated to current version. Following versions of numpy (1.9.0, 1.9.2, 1.10.4), scipy(0.14.0, 0.15.1, 0.17.0) and matplotlib(1.3.1, 1.4.3, 1.5.1) have been tested successfully.
  • If you receive error(s) related to one or more of these modules, check this solution and/or check versions of python and required modules.

HiCPlotter is tested on Mac OS (Mountain Lion and Yosemite) and Linux (RedHat 4.1.2-44 and 5.5-Final) systems.

HiCPlotter is purposefully designed with the least amount of dependencies to make it easily applicable.

Input Files

Hi-C/5C matrix data

For visualizing Hi-C or 5C data, HiCPlotter requires a matrix file (by default first line is ignored).

Matrix files are plotted as their log2 values and color legend is put below the plot.

Bin1	Bin2	Bin3	Bin4	Bin5	Bin6
7.85957	4.80329	11.4766	9.57416	4.5288	8.55022

3.8696	1.41425	7.68872	2.21027	5.06846	3.20063

If your file (example is modified from GSM873926) has several header lines, use -fh parameter (this particular case -fh 5).

If your file is in bed file format as in GSM1081531, you can covert it to a matrix file with bedToMatrix.py in Utils directory. Each file should have data from one chromosome. To split the file, you can use -> awk '{if($1=="chr6") print}' [file] > [newfile]

chr6	80000_120000	120000_160000	10.278
chr6	80000_120000	160000_200000	3.648
chr6	80000_120000	200000_240000	4.204

*run python bedToMatrix.py [file_name] 

Triplet sparse format

HiCPlotter now accepts the output format of HiC-Pro pipeline, where the matrix file is a three column sparse format in which first two columns are interacting bins and third column is interaction frequency. Bins do not interact with each other (with score 0) are not listed in the file.

1050	1586	1
1050	1589	1
1050	1590	1 (jumps to 1612)
1050	1612	2

An annotation file (bed format) is also required to denote each bin's chromosomal locations. Fourth column is the bin number inside the matrix file.

chr1	20960000	20980000	1049
chr1	20980000	21000000	1050
chr1	21000000	21020000	1051
chr1	21020000	21040000	1052
chr1	21040000	21060000	1053
chr1	21060000	21080000	1054
chr1	21080000	21100000	1055

User should set -tri parameter to 1 and provide the bin-annotation bed file with -bed FILENAME. An example usage:

python HiCPlotter.py -f GSE35156_GSM892306_hESC.40000.matrix -chr chr7 -o Example -r 40000 -tri 1 -bed GSE35156_GSM892306_hESC.40000_ord.bed -n hES -s 650 -e 700 

BedGraph

For visualizing any type of genomic data, HiCPlotter uses bedGraph format.

chromA  chromStartA  chromEndA  dataValueA color (optional)     text (optional)
chr1	10000		 10500		10.0	   250,13,27		   Polycomb

4th column should be a floating number for histograms.

5th column should be an rgb color for tile or arc plots.

6th column should be a string for tile plots. Columns after 6th will be ignored.

Peak File

For annotating the interaction matrix, HiCPlotter requires the following format.

chromA	chromStartA  chromEndA	chromB	chromStartB chromEndB	color (optional)
chr10	100180000	100190000	chr10	100410000	100420000	0,255,255
chr10	101600000	101610000	chr10	101800000	101810000	0,255,255
chr10	102100000	102105000	chr10	102190000	102195000	0,255,255

Gene File

For plotting genes under the interaction matrix, HiCPlotter requires the following format.

chrom  geneStart  geneEnd	geneName	strand(optional)	exonStarts(optional)	exonEnds(optional)	color (optional)	fontSize (optional)
chr1	11873		 14409	DDX11L1		+					11873,12645,13220,		12227,12697,14409,	250,13,27			15
chr1	14361		 16765	WASH7P		-					14361,14969,15795,16606,		14829,15038,15942,16765,
chr1	14361		 19759	WASH7P		-					14361,14969,15795,16606,16857,17232,17605,17914,18267,18912,		14829,15038,15947,16765,17055,17368,17742,18061,18366,19759,

This file should be sorted based on 2nd column (geneStart).

To specify specific gene label size, provide an integer at column 9 (a color should be provided at column 8th)

For 6th (exonStarts) and 7th (exonEnds) columns, there should be a comma at the very end.

If 5th column is provided then 6th and 7th columns should be provided as well.

Usage

python HiCPlotter.py -f file1 file2 -n name1 name2 -chr chrX -o output

You can generate all of the following examples by using "sh testRun.sh", all of required files are in the data folder.

Plotting whole chromosome

Please note: -fh is set to 0 as the input matrix doesn't have a header line.

Epilogos plotting

Epilogos is developed visualization and analysis of chromatin state model data in various cell types by Wouter Meuleman and Manolis Kellis. More about epilogos, check

You can download the epilogos data from

**Epilogos with Replication Timing and Hi-C data**

Example plot from HiCPlotter

Use parameter (-im) if you download the qcat file from imputed/ folder

Currently color of each states for Epilogos plotting is hard-coded in HiCPlotter, therefore please use qcat files in imputed or observed folders.

Highlighting selected loci on the plot

Highlights on the plots can be drawn with -high 1 and passing a bed file name to -hf parameter.

Comparing Hi-C matrices

Hi-C matrices can be compared by using -c parameter, which will generate log2 comparison matrix for the first two matrices.

python HiCPlotter.py -f data/HiC/Human/HUVEC-chr10_25kb.RAWobserved_KRnormalizedMatrix.txt data/HiC/Human/IMR90-chr10_25kb.RAWobserved_KRnormalizedMatrix.txt -chr chr10 -n HUVEC IMR90 -o comparison -s 4850 -e 5400 -mm 8 -r 25000 -c 1 -t data/HiC/Human/HUVEC_18_core_K27ac_dense2.bed data/HiC/Human/IMR90_18_core_K27ac_dense2.bed -tl States States -spi 1 -hist data/HiC/Human/wgEncodeUwRepliSeqHuvecWaveSignalRep1.bedGraph data/HiC/Human/wgEncodeUwRepliSeqImr90WaveSignalRep1.bedGraph -hl RepliSeq RepliSeq -fhist 1 1
**Comparing HUVEC and IMR90 cell lines**

Example plot from HiCPlotter

For pair-wise matrix comparisons in addition to -c parameter, also use -p parameter which will plot comparison matrices for each pair of matrices.

Warning: can be memory inefficient for high-resolution matrices.

Tips

*If your data contains several columns before data matrix, from command line you could use:

cut -f N- matrix > new_matrix (where N is the ith column data values start)

*If any of the imported packages are missing in your python system, try to comment out those lines. For example:

Original  :     from scipy.signal import argrelextrema (line 20)
Try this  :     #from scipy.signal import argrelextrema (line 20). Use HiCPlotter with the -pi 0 and -ptd 0

*If you like to run HiCPlotter in verbose mode, please use -v parameter which will create a log file with which parameters the program ran.

*If you need to convert bigWig files to bedGraph files, you can use kentUtils/bigWigToBedGraph executable.
