This protocol demonstrates how to use MACS software to call peaks in a ChIP-seq data set. MACS is one of the most widely used peak-calling programs. The protocol describes how to run MACS in a UNIX environment and on Galaxy and how to extract the sequences of ±50 bp around the summits of the 500 MACS peaks with the most significant P values.
