dPeak: High Resolution TFBS Identification using ChIP-exo, PET and SET ChIP-Seq Data

dPeak is a high resolution transcription factor binding site (TFBS) identification
(deconvolution) algorithm. dPeak implements a probabilistic model that accurately
describes ChIP-exo and ChIP-Seq data generation process for both the SET and PET assays.
For SET ChIP-Seq data, dPeak outperforms or performs comparably to the state-of-the-art
high resolution ChIP-Seq peak deconvolution algorithms such as PICS, GPS, and GEM.
When coupled with PET ChIP-Seq data, dPeak significantly outperforms SET-based analysis
with any of the current state-of-the-art methods. For ChIP-exo data, dPeak outperforms
or performs comparably to the state-of-the-art algorithms such as GEM and Apex.
