[…] to the reference human genome (build hg19) using bowtie247, with a maximum mismatch of 2 bases. the alignment rate was >95% for all samples. we identified regions of significant enrichment using peakseq v1.148 using input as background control, tag extension of 200 bp, and a target false discovery rate (q value) of 0.01. the number of peaks obtained for each sample are outlined […]
