Structure of MPRA data. Thousands of putative regulatory elements can be assayed at a time in an MPRA experiment. Each element is linked to multiple barcodes. A plasmid library containing these barcoded elements is transfected into several cell populations (samples). Cellular DNA and RNA can be isolated and sequenced. The barcodes associated with each putative regulatory element can be counted to obtain relative abundances of each element in DNA and RNA. The process of aggregation sums counts over barcodes for element in each sample. Aggregation is one method for summarizing barcode level data into element level data
