Biochemical techniques measure many individual properties of chromatin along the genome. These properties include DNA accessibility (measured by DNase-seq) and the presence of individual transcription factors and histone modifications (measured by ChIP-seq). Segway is software that transforms multiple datasets on chromatin properties into a single annotation of the genome that a biologist can more easily interpret. This protocol describes how to use Segway to annotate the genome, starting with reads from a ChIP-seq experiment. It includes pre-processing of data, training the Segway model, annotating the genome, assigning biological meanings to labels, and visualizing the annotation in a genome browser.
