Hi-C experiments are costly to perform and involve multiple complex experimental steps. Reproducibility of Hi-C data is essential for ensuring the validity of the scientific conclusions drawn from the data. In this chapter, we describe several recently developed computational methods for assessing reproducibility of Hi-C replicate experiments. These methods can also be used to assess the similarity between any two Hi-C samples.
