# Quick-start¶

To use epic, you need at least one ChIP and one input bed file. Let’s download some test data from github:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/biocore-ntnu/epic/master/examples/control.bedpe
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/biocore-ntnu/epic/master/examples/test.bed


Now you can run epic on these files with

epic -t test.bed -c control.bedpe -o enriched_regions.csv


The -t means treatment (ChIP), while the -c means control (input). The -o is the path where you want to store the results. If no output path is given, the results are written to stdout.
