This package is for version 3.17 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see sangeranalyseR.

sangeranalyseR: a suite of functions for the analysis of Sanger sequence data in R

Bioconductor version: 3.17

This package builds on sangerseqR to allow users to create contigs from collections of Sanger sequencing reads. It provides a wide range of options for a number of commonly-performed actions including read trimming, detecting secondary peaks, and detecting indels using a reference sequence. All parameters can be adjusted interactively either in R or in the associated Shiny applications. There is extensive online documentation, and the package can outputs detailed HTML reports, including chromatograms.
