A tool to detect editing sites from deep sequencing data

RNAEditor is an all-in-one tool to analyze RNA editing events from RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) data. Raw sequencing reads (.fastq) or mapped reads (.bam) can be used as an input data. RNAEditor maps the reads to the genome, calculates sequence variations, filters for “non-editing sites” and applies a cluster algorithm to detect “editing islands”.
