Synopsis: Model-based Analysis of ChIP-Seq
With the improvement of sequencing techniques, chromatin immunoprecipitation
followed by high throughput sequencing (ChIP-Seq) is getting popular to study genome-wide
protein-DNA interactions. To address the lack of powerful ChIP-Seq analysis method,
we present a novel algorithm, named Model-based Analysis of ChIP-Seq (MACS), for
identifying transcript factor binding sites. MACS captures the influence of genome
complexity to evaluate the significance of enriched ChIP regions, and MACS improves
the spatial resolution of binding sites through combining the information of both
sequencing tag position and orientation. MACS can be easily used for ChIP-Seq data
alone, or with control sample with the increase of specificity.
