Summary: Segway performs semi-automated genome annotation, discovering joint patterns across multiple genomic signal datasets. We discuss a major new version of Segway and highlight its ability to model data with substantially greater accuracy. Major enhancements in Segway 2.0 include the ability to model data with a mixture of Gaussians, enabling capture of arbitrarily complex signal distributions, and minibatch training, leading to better learned parameters.
Availability and implementation: Segway and its source code are freely available for download at http://segway.hoffmanlab.org. We have made available scripts (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.802939) and datasets (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.802906) for this paper's analysis.
Supplementary information: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
