Analysis of nanopore sequencing data.

Project Description

## Summary
This package provides tools for the analysis of raw nanopore sequencing data, including correction of basecalls and visualization.

## Full Documentation
Full documentation available at [Read the Docs](

## Installation
Install nanoraw without plotting dependencies (base genome_resquiggle algorithm and text outputs: wig and fasta)
pip install nanoraw

Install nanoraw with plotting dependencies (requires separate installation of R packages ggplot2 and cowplot)
pip install nanoraw[plot]

Install bleeding edge via github
pip install git+

## Usage

nanoraw -h
nanoraw [command] [options]

#### Main Comand (Must be run before any other commands):
genome_resquiggle Re-annotate raw signal with genomic aignement of existing basecalls.

#### Genome Anchored Plotting Commands:
plot_max_coverage Plot signal in regions with the maximum coverage.
plot_genome_location Plot signal at defined genomic locations.
plot_motif_centered Plot signal at regions centered on a specific motif.
plot_max_difference Plot signal where signal differs the most between two groups.
plot_most_significant Plot signal where signal differs the most significantly between two groups.
plot_motif_with_stats Plot signal from several regions and test statistics centered on a motif of interst.

#### Sequencing Time Anchored Plotting Commands:
plot_correction Plot segmentation before and after correction.
plot_multi_correction Plot multiple raw signals anchored by genomic location.

#### Other Plotting Commands:
cluster_most_significant Clustering traces at bases with significant differences.
plot_kmer Plot signal quantiles acorss kmers.

#### Auxiliary Commands:
write_most_significant Write sequence where signal differs the most significantly between two groups.
write_wiggles Write wiggle files for nanopore signal values, coverage, and statistics.
