Binding site defintion based on iCLIP data

Bioconductor version: 3.16

Precise knowledge on the binding sites of an RNA-binding protein (RBP) is key to understand (post-) transcriptional regulatory processes. Here we present a workflow that describes how exact binding sites can be defined from iCLIP data. The package provides functions for binding site definition and result visualization. For details please see the vignette.
