Description

ChIP-seq is the most commonly used technique to study binding profiles of chromatin proteins, such as TFs or histone modification patterns. This course is an introduction to ChIP-seq data, and data analysis mainly using R, some command line based peak-callers and online software. It provides a theoretical background and the means to perform peak calling and differential binding analysis.

Aims

The aim of the course is to draw biologists' attention to the impact of experimental design, and the pitfalls of ChIP-seq data analysis, and to give them the tools to do their own preliminary data analysis.
