Hi. I need help to understand why I got this technical issue in my chip seq data. The first chip replicate the alignment read was 66% and when I used mas2 to call peaks I got 46000 peaks. Which considered poor. The secound time i got only 800 peaks BUT the alignment read was : any one can ecplain why there is no peacks ? Thank you MCF7IGF109859

In short - no. More detail needed. genome, read length, goal, antibody, etc etc etc etc.

Have a look at Deeptools in Freiburg and especially their excellent plotFingerprint plots to assess your ChIP signal.
