*EventPointer* is an R package to identify alternative splicing events
that involve either simple (case-control experiment) or complex experimental designs
such as time course experiments and studies including paired-samples. The algorithm can
be used to analyze data from either junction arrays (Affymetrix Arrays) or sequencing data (RNA-Seq).
The software returns a data.frame with the detected alternative splicing
events: gene name, type of event (cassette, alternative 3',...,etc), genomic
position, statistical significance and increment of the percent spliced in (Delta PSI) for all
The algorithm can generate a series of files to visualize the detected alternative
splicing events in IGV. This eases the interpretation of results and the design
of primers for standard PCR validation.
