RNA interference (RNAi) is known to play an important part in defence against viruses in a range of species. Second-generation sequencing technologies allow us to assay these systems and the small RNAs that play a key role with unprecedented depth. However, scientists need access to tools that can condense, analyse and display the resulting data. Here, we present viRome, a package for R that takes aligned sequence data and produces a range of essential plots and reports.

Availability and implementation:

viRome is released under the BSD license as a package for R available for both Windows and Linux Additional information and a tutorial is available on the ARK-Genomics website:
