Alternative splicing identification software tools | RNA sequencing data analysis
Alternative splicing is widely recognized for its roles in regulating genes and creating gene diversity. Consequently the identification and quantification of differentially spliced transcripts is pivotal for transcriptome analysis.
Assists users in mapping reads to a reference genome. Subread offers a suite of programs for processing next-generation sequencing read data. This package includes Subread (an aligner), Subjunc (an aligner), Sublong (a long-read aligner), Subindel (a long indel detection program), featureCounts (a read quantification program), exactSNP (an SNP calling program) and other utility programs.
Assembles transcripts, estimates their abundances, and tests for differential expression and regulation in RNA-Seq samples. Cufflinks assembles individual transcripts from RNA-seq reads that have been aligned to the genome. This software is able to infer the splicing structure of each gene because reads from multiple splice variants for a given gene can be found in a sample. Quantification of transcript abundances is also possible by preferring a reference annotation to assembling the reads.
Allows users to handle RNA-sequencing pipeline based on the TopHat, Cufflinks and CummeRbund suite of software. Tuxedo is a program that enables assessment of alternative splicing (AS) inferred on fragments per kilobase per million (FPKM) values. It can assist researchers to detect genes and splicing variants and compare gene expression and transcripts under different conditions.
Identifies differentially expressed genes or isoforms for RNA-seq data from different samples. DEGseq encourages users to export gene expression values in a table format which could be directly processed by edgeR. It is based on the random sampling model which fits well the random sampling model. This tool can be applied to recognize differential expression of exons or pieces of transcripts.
Builds transcriptomes from RNA-seq data. Trinity is a standalone software composed of three main components: (i) Inchworm, that first generates transcript contigs; (ii) Chrysalis, for clustering them and constructing complete de Bruijn graphs for each cluster and; (iii) Butterfly that processes individual graphs in parallel for finally resulting to the reconstruction of the transcript sequences.
Provides analysis, management and visualization tools for next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. Strand NGS supports extensive workflows for alignment, RNA-seq, small RNA-seq, DNA-seq, Methyl-seq, MeDIP-seq and ChIP-seq experiments. This tool includes standard differential expression analysis for different experimental conditions, as well as differential splicing analysis. It can notice variants in the transcriptome and gene fusion events.
Offers a model for alternative splicing (AS) at exon or isoform level. MISO is a program that uses information in single-end or paired-end RNA-seq data and a Bayesian inference to estimate the probability for a read to be issued from a particular isoform. The program is available through two packages: in C language (fastmiso) or in Python language (misopy). The application supplies confidence intervals (CIs) for: (i) estimating of exon and isoform abundance, (ii) identifying differential expression. It can be applied for analyzing isoform regulation.
