-Comparison of HiC matrices
-`hicCompareMatrices` takes two matrices, normalizes them and appliesthe given operation. To
-normalize the matrices each element is divided by sum of the matrix.
+Comparison of Hi-C matrices
+This tool is useful to compare two matrices by applying operations like difference, ratio or log2ratio after normalization. To
+normalize the matrices, each element is divided by the sum of the matrix.
+**hicCompareMatrices** can be used for example to determine the effect of a mutation compared to wild-type samples on contact enrichment,
+or to see TAD structure modifications near differentially expressed genes between two conditions when followed by ``hicPlotMatrix``.
+It can also be used to compare two biological replicates.
+**hicCompareMatrices** is usually perfomed on corrected matrices (``hicCorrectMatrix``) with bins merged (``hicMergeMatrixBins``) depending
+on the downstream analyses to perform (visualisation of a whole chromosome, or of a small region, etc).
-- the matricies to be compared
+Here is an example of a log2ratio comparison between M1BP Knockdown and GST cells in
+*Drosophila melanogaster* on corrected matrices with 50 bins merged (about 30kb bins) plotted using ``hicPlotMatrix``.

+In this plot we see that the cells with a M1BP Knockdown display a negative log2ratio compared to the wild-type. Depletion of M1BP thus show a dramatic effect on the distribution of Hi-C contacts in which short range contacts decrease (Ramirez *et al.* 2017,  High-resolution TADs reveal DNA sequences underlying genome organization in flies, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-017-02525-w).
+Below you can find an example of a log2ratio plot between Hi-C matrices of two biological replicates, no differences are observable which means that the replicates are well correlated.
