Summary: High-throughput sequencing technologies such as ChIP-seq have deepened our understanding in many biological processes. De novo motif search is one of the key downstream computational analysis following the ChIP-seq experiments and several algorithms have been proposed for this purpose. However, most web-based systems do not perform independent filtering or enrichment analyses to ensure the quality of the discovered motifs. Here, we developed a web server Factorbook Motif Pipeline based on an algorithm used in analyzing ENCODE consortium ChIP-seq datasets. It performs comprehensive analysis on the set of peaks detected from a ChIP-seq experiments: (i) de novo motif discovery; (ii) independent composition and bias analyses and (iii) matching to the annotated motifs. The statistical tests employed in our pipeline provide a reliable measure of confidence as to how significant are the motifs reported in the discovery step.
