PeakSeq is a program for identifying and ranking peak regions in ChIP-Seq experiments. It takes as input, mapped reads from a ChIP-Seq experiment, mapped reads from a control experiment and outputs a file with peak regions ranked with increasing Q-values.



PeakSeq is described in Rozowsky et al. Nature Biotech 27: 66 (more)

Software download

PeakSeq version 1.3: Several bug fixes, cleanup of the command line while PeakSeq runs.

PeakSeq version 1.1: Re-coded from scratch, runs slightly faster and it is easier to use, and supports multiple mapped read file formats. Refer to the README file in the archive for help on running PeakSeq. In addition, these slides may be helpful.

PeakSeq version 1.01: Original PeakSeq code.
