Title:Sircah: a tool for the detection and visualization of alternative transcripts
Creators Name:Harrington, E.D. and Bork, P.
Abstract:Sircah is a flexible tool for the detection, analysis and visualisation of alternative transcripts. It takes as input gene models or spliced alignments and creates a database of alternative transcription events: alternative transcription initiation and polyadenylation, alternative 3' and 5' splice-site usage, skipped exons and retained introns. The results can be visualised in a variety of ways, allowing the creation of publication quality images. RESULTS: AVAILABILITY: The Sircah is available for download under a creative commons license along with additional documentation and a tutorial from http://www.bork.embl.de/Sircah.
