Pyicos: a versatile toolbox for regulatory genomics"

A revolution is taking place in the study of gene regulation: High-throughput sequencing has become the basis of various techniques, like ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq, CLIP-Seq, and new techniques evolve constantly. But do we need a new specialized tool to analyze each data type? Not necessarily! We propose Pyicos (, a generic tool that can adapt to various data types, by providing operations that are typically required for their manipulation and analysis. Pyicos is open-source and its input are genomic positions obtained from the mapper of choice. We show the high accuracy of Pyicos by comparing it to methods, specifically designed for the analysis of ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq or CLIP-Seq data. With its flexibility and suitability for integration, Pyicos provides a convenient basis for the study of gene regulation.
