PASSion

Paired-end RNA-Seq splice site detection

PASSion uses the mapped read in a pair as an anchor and then uses a high resolution algorithm, pattern growth, to remap the proximal and distal fragments of the unmapped read to a local region of the reference indicated by the mate. It is capable of identifying both known and novel canonical and non-canonical junctions with SNP or sequencing error tolerance. In addition, our package can discover differential and shared splicing patterns among multiple samples.
