EventPointer: An effective identification of alternative splicing events using junction arrays

Organism Icon Homo sapiens
Sample Icon 27 Downloadable Samples
Technology Badge Icon Affymetrix Human Transcriptome Array 2.0 (hta20)

Submitter Supplied Information

There is an increasing interest on the role of Alternative splicing (AS) in different pathologies. The Affymetrix Human Transcriptome Array (HTA 2.0) can be used to explore AS very efficiently. However, the interpretation software provided by its vendor (TAC 3.0) does not fully exploit its potential and can only be applied to case-control studies. EventPointer is an R package to identify Alternative Splicing events using HTA 2.0 arrays. It can be applied to complex experimental designs. The software provides a list of the detected events indicating the type of event (cassette, alternative 3, etc.), their statistical significance, and affected protein domains affected. The false positive rate is very low (the first detected false positive was ranked in the 149th position). EventPointer is publicly available at GitHub.
