Analysis of ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq Data with BioWardrobe
The massive amount of information produced by ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq, and other next-generation sequencing-based methods requires computational data analysis. However, biologists performing these experiments often lack training in bioinformatics. BioWardrobe aims to bridge this gap by providing a convenient user interface and by automating routine data-processing steps. This protocol details the use of BioWardrobe for identifying and visualizing ChIP-Seq peaks, calculating RPKMs, performing differential binding or gene expression analysis, and creating plots and heat maps. We specifically describe how to use BioWardrobe’s quality control measures for troubleshooting NGS-based experiments.
