GCC 2017 has ended
The 2017 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2017) is being held in Montpellier, France, 26-30 June.  GCC2017 will include keynotes and accepted talks, poster sessions, demos, birds-of-a-feather meetups, exhibitors, and plenty of networking opportunities. There will also be three days of pre-conference activities, including hackathons and training. If you work in data-intensive biomedical research, there is no better place than GCC2017 to present your work and to learn from others.

The full printed program is also available.

ChIPseq analysis using DeepTools and MACS

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!


Did my IP work? Where is my signal? How well do my replicates correlate? What might my peaks even look like? Where are my peaks (or signal) in relationship to transcription start sites (or other features)? These are common questions that biologists first pose when dealing with ChIPseq data. We will use deepTools and MACS within Galaxy to demonstrate effective methods of

  1. performing ChIPseq-specific quality control,
  2. calling peaks and
  3. visualising signal and peak enrichment around genes or other features.

  • Galaxy 101 or equivalent experience.
  • Ideally participants will already be familiar with generic NGS quality control and read mapping, since those won't be covered
  • A wi-fi enabled laptop with a modern web browser. Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari will work best.
