Question: Workflow/pipeline for detecting isoforms/alternative splicing

Hello, I am doing a DEG analysis using the STAR-HTSeq-DESeq2 pipeline on mouse RNA-seq. I am also interested to detect isoform or alternative splices. I read this post a tool for alternative splicing. But it seems to be an old post, and I also checked MATS, but I have a hard time installing those dependencies to my cloud. So, can you recommend me any other tool for isoform/ alternative splicing detection following my DEG pipeline? Any tools for GO and pathway analysis for the mouse genes?

Thank you!

You can install most software via package managers such as conda which take care of all dependencies.

Not familiar with differential isoform usage, but this vignette seems to be a good starting point:

Regarding GO analysis, there are several tools out there. One is topGO R package:

I hope this helps,

Try AltAnalyze which has a GUI and hence, dependencies are less of an issue (good to still install R and hopach in R).

The software can be run by GUI or command-line, enables direct analysis of FASTQ files (modification of Kallisto for pseudo-alignment) to derive BAM files and automates gene expression and splicing differential comparative analyses (with plots, including automatic SashimiPlots). Also compatible with a directory of BAM files. If you have hg38 data, contact us to get access to the newer database.
