This is a testing dataset for ChIP-seq (chromatin Immunoprecipitation sequencing) peak callers. It was made from a his-tagged tfbD pulldown in Halobacterium salinarum, sequenced on the Illumina GAII. The reads were mapped using bowtie to a cut-down chromosome and one plasmid, and unmapped reads were discarded. 


This is a fairly challenging dataset. It contains several genomic features that can potentially break peak-calling algorithms, including transposons, copy number variations, and indels with resepect to the reference genome used.
