Registration Open for Bioc2024 July 24-26


This is the development version of mobileRNA; for the stable release version, see mobileRNA.

mobileRNA: Investigate the RNA mobilome & population-scale changes

Bioconductor version: Development (3.20)

Genomic analysis can be utilised to identify differences between RNA populations in two conditions, both in production and abundance. This includes the identification of RNAs produced by multiple genomes within a biological system. For example, RNA produced by pathogens within a host or mobile RNAs in plant graft systems. The mobileRNA package provides methods to pre-process, analyse and visualise the sRNA and mRNA populations based on the premise of mapping reads to all genotypes at the same time.
