I have been trying to find tools to estimate fragment length for single end ChIP-seq data. I've been able to get some success with Homer's makeTagDirectory and MaSC but I wanted to triple check my numbers with another tool. Q is able to estimate the average fragment length as well as part of its peak calling. I was wondering if anyone has used it as it is relatively new and what they think of it? Can it be run on a mac system?

Or if you have any other recommendations of tools to estimate fragment length for single-end read data?

You don't have the output from a bioanalyzer run? I would think that'd be more reliable.

MACS does fragment length estimation, which I found to be fairly accurate. It's a popular tool, so it should be relatively easy to install and run.

Good catch, it's the predictd program from MACS.

SPP from phantompeakqualtools does fragment estimation and I believe it's what the ENCODE pipeline uses.
