Contributions to software developed in a research group

RiboPlot

RiboPlot is a Python program to plot and output Ribo-Seq read counts (and optionally with RNA coverage) from BAM format alignment files. I developed the program in Python, created a wrapper for Galaxy and also made it available in the PyPI and Anaconda repositories.
