Performs gene and isoform level quantification from RNA-Seq data. RSEM is a software package that quantifies gene and isoform abundances from single-end (SE) or paired-end (PE) RNA-Seq data. The software enables visualization of its output through probabilistically-weighted read alignments and read depth plots. It does not require a reference genome and thus can be useful for quantification with de novo transcriptome assemblies.

BitSeq / Bayesian inference of transcripts from sequencing data

star star star star star
An application for inferring expression levels of individual transcripts from sequencing (RNA-Seq) data and estimating differential expression (DE) between conditions. An advantage of this approach is the ability to account for both technical uncertainty and intrinsic biological variance in order to avoid false DE calls. The technical contribution to the uncertainty comes both from finite read-depth and the possibly ambiguous mapping of reads to multiple transcripts.

Offers a platform for the detection of genomic features into transcripts from next generation RNA sequencing data. RNA-eXpress provides a graphic user interface (GUI) dedicated to the identification of splice variants, transcription start sites, UTRs, introns as well as non-coding RNA features. Users can run feature annotation, comparison, sequence extraction and read counting. The application can supply results as summary statistics, histograms or pie charts.

MISO / Mixture of Isoforms

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.


Analyzes parallel RNA sequence data to catalog transcripts and assess differential and alternative expression of known and predicted mRNA isoforms in cells and tissues. ALEXA-Seq comprises several functions: (1) creation of a database of expression and alternative expression sequence ‘features’, (2) mapping of short paired-end sequence reads to these features, (3) identification of features that are expressed above background noise while taking into account locus-by-locus noise, or (4) identification of features that are differentially expressed in samples.

A program to enable the visualisation and analysis of mapped sequence data. SeqMonk was written for use with mapped next generation sequence data but can in theory be used for any dataset which can be expressed as a series of genomic positions. It's main features are: (i) Import of mapped data from mapped data (BAM/SAM/bowtie etc), (ii) Creation of data groups for visualisation and analysis, (iii) Visualisation of mapped regions against an annotated genom, (iv) Flexible quantitation of the mapped data to allow comparisons between data sets, (v) Statistical analysis of data to find regions of interest and (vi) Creation of reports containing data and genome annotation.


An easy-to-use application for microarray, RNA-Seq and metabolomics analysis. For splicing sensitive platforms (RNA-Seq or Affymetrix Exon, Gene and Junction arrays), AltAnalyze will assess alternative exon (known and novel) expression along protein isoforms, domain composition and microRNA targeting. In addition to splicing-sensitive platforms, AltAnalyze provides comprehensive methods for the analysis of other data (RMA summarization, batch-effect removal, QC, statistics, annotation, clustering, network creation, lineage characterization, alternative exon visualization, gene-set enrichment and more).


Detects and quantify alternative splicing (AS) events in RNA-Seq experiments. Solas is an R package that is composed of three different functions: (i) DASI (Differential Alternative Splicing Index), for the detection of alternative splicing events differentiating two conditions; (ii) CASI (Cell Alternative Splicing Index), for the identification of genes and exons which are part of an AS event; and (iii) POEM (Proportion Estimation) for the quantification of the relative proportion of different isoforms.


Allows identification of isoforms from RNA-seq data. SparseIso is a Bayesian method that considers the reads falling on both splice junctions and exons. In this software, the transcript abundance is sampled considering all candidate isoforms to find a global view of isoform selection. The preference of selecting isoforms is determined by both the expression state and the correlation of isoform structure modeled in the covariance matrix. SparseIso allows the false transcripts to have reasonable low abundance.


Detects and visualizes of differential alternative transcription. DiffSplice is an ab initio method to detect alternative splicing isoforms that are differentially expressed under different conditions using high-throughput RNA-seq reads. This software directly localizes where differential splicing occurs, making it easier to identify exons involved in alternative transcription. It estimates the relative proportion of alternative transcription flows in every ASM and calculates the Jensen–Shannon divergence (JSD) to quantify the difference in transcription between samples.

TRAPLINE / Transparent Reproducible and Automated PipeLINE

Serves for RNAseq data processing, evaluation and prediction. TRAPLINE guides researchers through the NGS data analysis process in a transparent and automated state-of-the-art pipeline. It can detect protein-protein interactions (PPIs), miRNA targets and alternatively splicing variants or promoter enriched sites. This tool includes different modules for several functions: (1) it scans the list of differentially expressed genes; (2) it includes modules for miRNA target prediction; and (3) a module is implemented to identify verified interactions between proteins of significantly upregulated and downregulated mRNAs.

MAJIQ / Modeling Alternative Junction Inclusion Quantification

Provides a method to detect, quantify and visualize differential splicing between groups of experiments. Two key features distinguish MAJIQ from other algorithms. First, MAJIQ does not quantify whole gene isoforms. Instead, MAJIQ defines a more general concept of “local splicing variations”, or LSVs. Briefly, LSVs are defined as splits in a gene splice graph where a reference exon is spliced together with other segments downstream (single source LSV) or upstream of it (single target LSV). The second important distinguishing element of MAJIQ is that it allows users to supplement previous transcriptome annotation with reliably-detected de-novo junctions from RNA-Seq experiments.

aRNApipe / automated RNA-seq pipeline

Analyzes single-end and stranded or unstranded paired-end RNA-seq data. aRNApipe focuses on high performance computing (HPC) environments and the independent designation of computational resources at each stage allowing optimization of HPC resources. It is highly flexible because its project configuration and management options. This tool can be adapted to changes in the current applications and the addition of new functionalities. It allows users to complete primary RNA-seq analysis.


A command-line software program to go from a de novo transcriptome assembly to gene-level counts. Corset takes a set of reads that have been multi-mapped to the transcriptome (where multiple alignments per read were reported) and hierarchically clusters the transcripts based on the proportion of shared reads and expression patterns. It will report the clusters and gene-level counts for each sample, which are easily tested for differential expression with count based tools such as edgeR and DESeq.


Allows users to characterize and quantify the set of all RNA molecules produced in cells. RseqFlow contains several modules that include: mapping reads to genome and transcriptome references, performing quality control (QC) of sequencing data, generating files for visualizing signal tracks based on the mapping results, calculating gene expression levels, identifying differentially expressed genes, calling coding single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and producing MRF and BAM files.

RNA CoMPASS / RNA Comprehensive Multi-Processor Analysis System for Sequencing

Analyzes exogenous and human sequences from RNAseq data. RNA CoMPASS is a parallel computation pipeline that provides a graphic user interface built from several open-source programs such as Novoalign and SAMMate. The application reads both the unmapped reads for pathogen discovery and the mapped reads for host transcriptome analysis. The program supports files generated from single-end, paired-end, and/or directional sequencing strategies.

Traph / Transcrips in gRAPHs

Allows to identify and quantify transcript. Traph is a de novo genome-based tool with two-fold advantage: (i) it translates a problem as an established one in the field of network flows, which can be solved in polynomial time, with different existing solvers and (ii) it is general enough to encompass many of the previous proposals under the least sum of squares model. This method is based on network flows for a multi-assembly problem arising from isoform identification and quantification with RNA-Seq.

It compares the expression profile of different samples. All comparisons are performed using a custom database which is mainly populated with several sources obtained from the NCBI. The tool allows user to discard ambiguously assigned reads or to assign those reads to all competing genes in the case of ambiguities.

DEIsoM / Differentially Expressed Isoform detection from Multiple biological replicates

Detects differentially expressed (DE) isoforms using multiple biological replicates from two conditions. DEIsoM consists of three parts: the hierarchical graphical model for isoform quantification, the variational Bayesian (VB) algorithm for model estimation and the identification of DE isoforms between two conditions. The software is relatively resistant to identifying isoforms with low read abundance in both conditions.


Analyzes the structure and functions of active microbial communities using the power of multi-threading computers.
