ChIPsim-package: Simulation of ChIP-seq experiments

Description Details Author(s) References See Also Examples


This package provides a framework for the simulation of ChIP-seq experiments. An implementation of a simulation for nucleosome positioning experiments is provided as part of the package. Simulations for other experiments can be implemented using the provided framework.
