Summary: Transposon calling cards is a genomic assay for identifying transcription factor binding sites in both bulk and single cell experiments. Here, we describe the qBED format, an open, text-based standard for encoding and analyzing calling card data. In parallel, we introduce the qBED track on the WashU Epigenome Browser, a novel visualization that enables researchers to inspect calling card data in their genomic context. Finally, through examples, we demonstrate that qBED files can be used to visualize non-calling card datasets, such as Combined Annotation-Dependent Depletion scores and GWAS/eQTL hits, and thus may have broad utility to the genomics community.
