This package is for version 3.16 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see IsoformSwitchAnalyzeR.

Identify, Annotate and Visualize Alternative Splicing and Isoform Switches with Functional Consequences from both short- and long-read RNA-seq data.

Bioconductor version: 3.16

Analysis of alternative splicing and isoform switches with predicted functional consequences (e.g. gain/loss of protein domains etc.) from quantification of all types of RNASeq by tools such as Kallisto, Salmon, StringTie, Cufflinks/Cuffdiff etc.
