RED-ML RED-ML is a software tool to do genome-wide RNA editing dectection (RED) based on RNA-seq data. All source codes and executables are located in the "bin" directory. The tool can be run on a Linux platform and the main program is


RED-ML: RNA Editing Detection basedon Machine learning (pronounced as “red ML”). The input to RED-ML can be as simple as a single BAM file, while it can also take advantage of matched genomic variant information when available. The output not only contains detected RNA editing sites, but also a confidence score to facilitate downstream filtering. The developers have carefully designed validation experiments and performed extensive comparison and analysis to show the efficiency and effectiveness of RED-ML under different conditions, and it can accurately detect novel RNA editing sites without relying on curated RNA editing databases. This tool is also freely available via GitHub <
