About ChAsE

ChAsE (Chromatin Analysis and Exploration) is a cross platform desktop application that provides an interactive graphical interface for analysis of epigenomic data. Features include:
- Exploration and visualization of the data using an interactive heat map and plot interface
- Clustering the data automatically or manually by sorting and brushing the heat map
- Exporting results for downstream analysis or as high quality images for publications


Why use ChAsE?

ChAsE was inspired by our work on Spark. It incorporates the same principle of clustering across regions of interest, but introduces several new features:

1. interactive sortable heat map
2. set construction based on presence/absence of signal
3. ability to compare different clusterings via set operations
