circRNAprofiler: An R-Based Computational Framework for the Downstream Analysis of Circular RNAs

Bioconductor version: 3.16

R-based computational framework for a comprehensive in silico analysis of circRNAs. This computational framework allows to combine and analyze circRNAs previously detected by multiple publicly available annotation-based circRNA detection tools. It covers different aspects of circRNAs analysis from differential expression analysis, evolutionary conservation, biogenesis to functional analysis.
