Summary: Alternative splicing is an important biological process widely analyzed in molecular diagnostic settings. Indeed, a variant can be pathogenic by splicing alteration and a suspected pathogenic variant (e.g. truncating variant) can be rescued by splicing. In this context, detecting and quantifying alternative splicing is challenging. We developed SpliceLauncher, a fast and easy to use open source tool that aims at detecting, annotating and quantifying alternative splice junctions at high resolution.
Availability and implementation: SpliceLauncher is available at https://github.com/raphaelleman/SpliceLauncher.
