Spats v1.0 is released!

Spats v1.0.0 is an update to the Spats pipeline for processing Next-Generation Sequencing Reads as part of SHAPE-Seq experiments. The major difference between v0.8.0 and v1.0.0 is the migration to the cutadapt utility for removing adapter sequences from the fastxtoolkit. This release still relies on fastx_revcomp, but the code is structured to completely move away from fastxtoolkit in the future.

We have also migrated all hosting of spats to github. Online documentation can now be found at the spats github page: which includes links to an installation guide and usage manual.

Happy SHAPE-Seq’ing!
