Integrative detection of genome-wide translation using iRibo

STAR Protoc. 2024 Mar 15;5(1):102826. doi: 10.1016/j.xpro.2023.102826. Epub 2024 Jan 12.


Ribosome profiling is a sequencing technique that provides a global picture of translation across a genome. Here, we present iRibo, a software program for integrating any number of ribosome profiling samples to obtain sensitive inference of annotated or unannotated translated open reading frames. We describe the process of using iRibo to generate a species' translatome from a set of ribosome profiling samples using S. cerevisiae as an example. For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Wacholder et al. (2023).1.
