Hopefully a simple question --
Is the "fold enrichment" output from MACS2 callpeaks a straight fold enrichment or is is a log10/log2/ln fold enrichment?
From Github MACS2 README section "Output files":
NAME_peaks.xls: "fold enrichment for this peak summit against random Poisson distribution with local lambda, -log10(qvalue) at peak summit"
Good luck deciphering what that means :)
Those are two different columns: 1) fold enrichment and 2) -log10(qvalue).
Hahah, I did see that in the README, but it left me equally confused!
It is just a fold enrichment, yes. Otherwise it would be called log fold enrichment! ;)
