This page contains software in support of P. Ramachandran, T. J. Perkins (2013) "Adaptive Bandwidth Kernel Density Estimation for Next-Generation Sequencing Data" BMC Proceedings.

Below you can download either a Matlab file (MainKDE.m) or an R file (AKDESeq.R) containing code implementing the adaptive bandwidth kernel density estimation schemes described in the paper. Usage instructions can be found in comments at the top of each file. The Matlab code is more polished, has some extra features, and is faster. However, if you are not a Matlab user, you may be interested in the R code. Both codes are are free for non-commercial use. If you have any feedback or questions, please email
