ConsHMM Atlas: conservation state annotations for major genomes and human genetic variation
The ConsHMM Atlas provides an atlas of over twenty genome-wide ConsHMM conservation state annotations for 8 organisms.
ConsHMM annotates reference genomes at single nucleotide resolution into different conservation states based on the combinatorial and spatial patterns within
a multiple species alignment inferred using a multivariate Hidden Markov Model (HMM).
ConsHMM can also produce allele specific conservation state annotations, which are provided as part of the ConsHMM Atlas
for all possible single-nucleotide mutations in the human genome. Additionally, the ConsHMM Atlas provides visualization tools of model parameters and enrichments.
- ConsHMM genome annotations for 8 organisms
See available organisms and assemblies in the table below. For some organisms and assemblies multiple different genome annotations are available
based on different multi-species alignments. Browser files for the annotations are available through here.
For the human assemblies, allele specific annotations are also available.
- ConsHMM R Shiny app for browsing models interactively
- ConsHMM software. ConsHMM is built on top
of the ChromHMM software for chromatin state learning.
