CistromeMap: a knowledgebase and web server for ChIP-Seq and DNase-Seq studies in mouse and human

Bioinformatics. 2012 May 15;28(10):1411-2. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/bts157. Epub 2012 Apr 11.


Transcription and chromatin regulators, and histone modifications play essential roles in gene expression regulation. We have created CistromeMap as a web server to provide a comprehensive knowledgebase of all of the publicly available ChIP-Seq and DNase-Seq data in mouse and human. We have also manually curated metadata to ensure annotation consistency, and developed a user-friendly display matrix for quick navigation and retrieval of data for specific factors, cells and papers. Finally, we provide users with summary statistics of ChIP-Seq and DNase-Seq studies.
