regtools

regtools is a set of tools that integrate DNA-seq and RNA-seq data to help interpret mutations in a regulatory and splicing context.

Features

  • Extract exon-exon junctions from a RNAseq BAM file.
  • Annotate exon-exon junctions with information from a known transcriptome.
  • Annotate variants with splice-region(the definition of this region is configurable) annotations.
