This module allows you to use SIPeS. With the advent of sequencing techniques, chromatin immunoprecipitation combined with high throughput sequencing (ChIP-Seq) is becoming a powerful tool to study protein-DNA interactions on genome-wide scale.SIPeS (Site Identification from Paired-end Sequencing), a novel algorithm, allows researchers to identify transcript factor binding sites from paired-end sequencing reads. SIPeS uses a dynamic baseline directly through the piling up of fragments to effectively find peaks, overcoming the disadvantage of estimating the average length of DNA fragments from singled-end sequencing achieving more powerful prediction binding sites with high sensitivity and specificity.
