What is Map2Peak?

Map2Peak is an ultrafast peak calling bioinformatics tool which combines the process of read alignment and peak calling. Map2Peak focuses only on those genomic regions which are likely to contain Transcription Factor Binding Sites (TFBS). By focusing on such regions, Map2Peak is able to quickly discard majority of background reads from the analysis which eventually brings speed to the overall process. Also, Map2Peak does not discard multi-mappable reads and allocates some of the multi-mappable reads to unique mapping location. This ability to utilize multi-mappable reads enhances the capability of Map2Peak to identify TFBS in repeat elements of genome.
