What it does
This tool generates peak multi-fasta files in order to make the best of ChIPMunk usage. This is highly recommanded for ChIP-seq data.
How it does it
This tool simply places the positional profiles exacted from a provided 'wiggle' file along the fasta headers of the respective sequences on which ChIPMunk will be preformed.
multi-fasta file containing sequences on which ChIPMunk will be preformed:
>mm10_chr1_128548800_128548805_+ Cxcr4 AGTAAC >... >chr1:128548800-128548805 AGTAAC >...
.wig file displaying positional information of the ChIP-seq data (compressed or not).
Note that it is not mandetory to provide all the sequences that the wig file covers. You can choose to focus on a group (top peaks.. ?).
The resulting ready-to-use peak multi-fasta file:
> 1.0 2.0 3.0 2.0 1.5 2.0 AGTAAC > 1.0 2.0 3.0 2.0 1.5 CAGTA ...
In this case, when using ChIPMunk, one must set "Type of the sequence set" to "Peak data".
