Unsupervised clustering of ChIP profiles

CATCHprofiles is an tool for exploring patterns in ChIP profiling data. The CATCH algorithm performs a hierachical clustering of the profile patterns with an exhaustive alignment at each step. The algorithm has a user-friendly graphical interface that makes it easy for you to browse your results.

CATCHprofiles is open source and free to download and use under the General Public License. The CATCH project repository is hosted by bioinformatics.org. If you have any questions or suggestions, please send them to the CATCH-users mailing list.

If you use CATCHprofiles for your work, please cite our paper CATCHprofiles: Clustering and Alignment Tool for ChIP Profiles. Thank you.
