SPRINT: an SNP free toolkit for identifying RNA editing sites

PMCID: 5870768
PMID: 29036410
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx473

[…] h the same type of variation (e.g. both are A-to-G or A-to-C)]. Indeed, in this study we found RES-based and SNP-based SNV duplets have very distinctive distributions, and have therefore developed an SNP-free RNA editing IdeNtification Toolkit (SPRINT) to identify RESs by clustering SNV duplets. When detecting RESs, most methods only investigated those RNA reads mapped to the reference genome (; ; […]
