Identifies broad peaks in diffuse ChIP-seq datasets. BroadPeak is a distinct approach for calling broad peaks in diffuse ChIP-seq datasets, and able to apply the algorithm to both real and simulated datasets to evaluate its performance. The software appears particularly well suited for calling large peaks as can be seen from the more contiguous characterization of known large peaks from the simulated datasets and the relatively broader distribution of called peak sizes.
