riboviz: analysis and visualization of ribosome profiling datasets

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5657068
PMID: 29070028
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-1873-8

[…] es such as biased codon usage, presence of poly-basic amino-acids, and protein-domain architecture affect the distribution of footprinting reads along a transcript []. Recently, several tools such as GWIPS-viz [], RiboGalaxy [], and RPFdb [] have been developed for both analysis and visualization of ribosome-profiling datasets. While GWIPS-viz and RPFdb use unified pipelines for processing and map […]


Insights into the mechanisms of eukaryotic translation gained with ribosome profiling

[…] xt of a whole organism (,) and for the detection of translation quantitative trait loci (,). Ribosome Profiling is now further empowered by a wide spectrum of computational resources. At RiboSeq.Org, GWIPS-viz (,) provides visualizations of genomic alignments for publicly available RiboSeq data aligned to the genomes of a dozen of organisms and RiboGalaxy () allows researchers to analyse their dat […]

In the recent ten years many of ribosome profiling (RP) assays were done.
This is a web tool to visualize ribosome profiling data. Its contains tens of RP studies in 24 organisms, including model organisms like mouse, worm, yeast and of course Human.
I finds this web tool very useful.
You can enter a location on the DNA or query gene and get out pot of the RP reads in this area.
