Generating data is only half the battle in ChIP-Seq. When the sequencing is complete, tens of millions of short sequence tags must be mapped back to the genome followed by peak calling. Peak calling is complicated by the fact that different algorithms are required for accurate peak calling depending on the antibody used. Thousands to tens of thousands of binding sites must then be exported into a meaningful output that relates the data to genes and allows for multiple samples to be compared to one another. Challenges continue with clustering, heat maps and graphical representations of genome-wide localization patterns. This type of in-depth bioinformatics analysis is beyond the capabilities of most labs. That is why data analysis is part of the standard package for all of our ChIP-Seq Service projects.
