Reditools: Efficient RNA editing detection by RNA-seq data

Ernesto Picardi, Graziano Pesole


The identification of RNA editing events from massive transcriptome sequencing data is yet a challenging task. Although few methodologies have been proposed no comprehensive software resource has been released up to now. To fill this gap we developed REDItools, a suite of python scripts to facilitate the study of RNA editing in the next generation sequencing era. REDItools work on whatever machine running unix/linux and are freely available at
