# Enhort: Genomic Position Profiling
The rise of high-throughput methods in genomic research greatly expanded our
knowledge about the functionality of the genome. At the same time, the amount
of available genomic position data increased massively, e.g., through genome-wide
profiling of protein binding, virus integration or DNA methylation.
However, there is no specialized software to investigate integration site profiles
of virus integration or transcription factor binding sites by correlating the sites
with the diversity of available genomic annotations.
Here we present Enhort, a user-friendly software tool for relating large sets of
genomic positions to a variety of annotations. It functions as a statistics based
genome browser, not focused on a single locus but analyzing many genomic positions
simultaneously. Enhort provides comprehensive yet easy-to-use methods for statistical
analysis, visualization, and the adjustment of background models according to
experimental conditions and scientific questions.
# Availability
Enhort is publicly available online at and published under GNU General Public License.
# Use pre-build
A seperate file is available containing instructions to run Enhort on your own infrastructure.
# Build
A JDK with Java 8 or higher is needed, as well as Maven.
Build steps:
- Download the sources from
- cd into the enhortlib folder
- run 'mvn package' to build the library
- run the following to add the library to the local .m2 folder and repository:
mvn install:install-file -Dfile=Enhortlib-1.01.jar -DpomFile=pom.xml
- cd back and into the /backend
- run 'mvn package -Dmaven.test.skip=true'
- Tests are skipped because several test-files are needed to run them
- cd back and into the /frontend directory
- run 'mvn package'
- go up one directory
- rename both jars with:
mv backend/target/Enhort-1.01-jar-with-dependencies.jar enhort.jar
mv frontend/target/Enhort-1.01-jar frontend.jar
- continue with the set up as described in the file
# VM
There is a VirtualBox image with Enhort set up for reference and to test with your own data:
