  • MACS peaks

    Hi,

    Am using MACS for the first time. I ran MACS on my sequence data and I find peaks (as listed in the bed file) in regions that have no signal. Why would this be? Has anyone encountered this phenomenon before? Please suggest.

    Thanks in advance,
    Veena

    How did you check there's no signal in those regions?

      hi Dawe, All,

      I debugged the issue and found that it was basically an issue with the input file fed to MACS.
      I was running MACS on .sam files. The program used to generate signal
      files from .sam files excluded repeats (X:A:R tags), whereas MACS
      included the repeats in the .sam file. I now reran MACS using the bed
      files as input for MACS (instead of .sam files) and it looks fine
      now.

      Thanks,
      Veena
