Hi,

I've a bigwig containing a chip-seq signal for a histone mark (H3K4me1) and I want to produce a bed file containing the peaks (the same way MACS produced a bigwig and a peak bed file)? How can I do that? If it's impossible I can realign the raw data and do the whole peak calling step but I prefer to avoid that.

Thanks

I ran into the same goal. However, I believe this is not working, as the bigwig might not be properly normalized the way that MACS does it

MACS2 can call peak from bedgraph, you can convert bigwig to bedgraph first by bigwigtobedgraph from here and then call peak with MACS2.

bdgpeakcall: Call peaks from bedGraph output.
