  • Lecture

Description

This lecture is an introduction to ChIP-seq experiments and data. It provides a theoretical background to experimental design and peak calling.

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 an overview of the analysis steps.

Prerequisites

  • HTS-introduction
  • Preprocessing
  • Alignment

Target audience

Biologist, Computational biologist

Learning objectives
