User-friendly, Powerful Software for Analyzing ChIP-Seq Data

Posted Apr 22 2013 8:00pm

Description of Invention:
The present invention provides a user-friendly software, called PAPST (Peak Assignment and Profile Search Tool for ChIP-Seq), for bench scientists to work with ChIP-Seq data in seconds, allowing the scientists to screen genes against multiple genomic features with ease and efficiency previously not realized. Furthermore, PAPST may be used to identify genes of special significance in a wide variety of biological and biomedical fields, which could lead the discovery of disease-associated genes and the development of therapeutic methods for human diseases. Lastly, this powerful, easy-to-use software does not require any special computation expertise.

  • Genomic analysis.
  • Drug target identification.

  • Easy to use.
  • Fast.
  • Either a stand-alone software or as an add-on to existing commercial software.

Development Status:
  • Prototype
  • Pilot
