An efficient, specialized and highly automated mapping and annotation tool for RNA bisulfite sequencing data. Focusing on both CG and non-CG methylation, BS-RNA can handle the mapping and annotation of either single- or paired-end sequencing reads of directional bisulfite libraries. This tool provide more comprehensive annotation information such as the distribution of cytosine methylation in both gene and transcript levels.
