MACS2 identifies transcription factor binding sites in ChIP-seq data.


MACS2 (Model-based Analysis of ChIP-Seq) is a tool for identifying transcript factor binding sites. MACS captures the influence of genome complexity to evaluate the significance of enriched ChIP regions.

The MACS2 MultiQC module reads the *_peaks.xls results files and prints the redundancy rates and number of peaks found in the General Statistics table. Numerous additional values are parsed and saved to multiqc_data/multiqc_macs2.txt.
