[08-09-2018] RNA Framework v2.6.6 [minor release]:
- Added mask file support to the
rf-count tool for excluding target transcript regions from being counted
- Fixed a minor bug in
rf-count causing the software to report the frequency of mutated reads rather than their percentage
The recent advent of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) techniques, has enabled transcriptome-scale analysis of the RNA epistructurome. Despite the establishment of several methods for querying RNA secondary structures (CIRS-seq, SHAPE-seq, Structure-seq, DMS-seq, PARS, SHAPE-MaP, DMS-MaPseq), and RNA post-transcriptional modifications (Ψ, m1A, m6A, m5C, hm5C, 2'-OMe) on a transcriptome-wide scale, no tool has been developed to date to enable the rapid analysis and interpretation of this data.
RNA Framework is a modular toolkit developed to deal with RNA structure probing and post-transcriptional modifications mapping high-throughput data.
Its main features are:
- Automatic reference transcriptome creation
- Automatic reads preprocessing (adapter clipping and trimming) and mapping
- Scoring and data normalization
- Accurate RNA folding prediction by incorporating structural probing data
