II. ENCODE and modENCODE Standards for ChIP-chip and ChIP-seq Experiments

IIa. Antibody characterization measures for antibodies to chromatin and transcription factors
IIb. ChIP-chip and ChIP-seq data production, including and standards for biochemical validation

III. Requirements for a DNase-seq and FAIRE-seq experiments
IV. Standards for determining DNA methylation status
V. Recommended Standards for Reporting mod/ENCODE Data

Appendix I. Recommended Standards for ChIP-seq including depth of sequencing recommendations, biological replicate requirements and data verification standards
Appendix II. Validation of Commercial Histone Modification Antibodies to be Used for ChIP
