Development Status
  • Prototype
  • Pilot
The present invention provides a user-friendly software, called PAPST (Peak Assignment and Profile Search Tool for ChIP-Seq), for bench scientists to work with ChIP-Seq data in seconds, allowing the scientists to screen genes against multiple genomic features with ease and efficiency previously not realized. Furthermore, PAPST may be used to identify genes of special significance in a wide variety of biological and biomedical fields, which could lead the discovery of disease-associated genes and the development of therapeutic methods for human diseases. Lastly, this powerful, easy-to-use software does not require any special computation expertise.
Commercial Applications
  • Genomic analysis.
  • Drug target identification.
Competitive Advantages
  • Easy to use.
  • Fast.
  • Either a stand-alone software or as an add-on to existing commercial software.
