check_bed description

Check_bed checks whether tag positions on chromosomes are correctly mapped (e.g. positions do not exceed cromosome length).

Parent program: chip-seq

ChIP-Seq combines chromatin immunoprecipitation with massively parallel DNA sequencing to identify the set of cis-acting targets of DNA-associated proteins or factors on a genome scale. It can be used to precisely map global binding sites for any protein of interest. Previously, ChIP-on-Chip was the most common technique used to identify trascription factor DNA interactions. Chip-Seq is also used to study epigenetic events such as histone modifications and DNA methylation.
