Help us improve PyPI by participating in user testing. All experience levels needed!

TRANSIT is a tool for the analysis of Tn-Seq data. It provides an easy to use graphical interface and access to three different analysis methods that allow the user to determine essentiality in a single condition as well as between conditions.

Project description

# TRANSIT 2.2.1

[![Build Status](]( [![Documentation Status](](

Version 2.2.0 changes (June, 2018) - Added analysis method for Genetic Interactions. - Added Mann-Whitney U-test for comparative analysis. - Made TRANSIT compatible with wxPython 4.0 (Phoenix). - Datasets now automatically selected when they are added to TRANSIT. - TRANSIT window now starts maximized. - Updated documentation. - Fixed bug with plots of finished results files. - Fixed bug in packaging of TPP, causing problem with console mode in new setuptools. - Other misc. bugs fixes

Version 2.1.2 changes (May, 2018) - Improved resampling on comparisons with unbalanced number of replicates. - Improved speed of TPP. - Added Barseq functionality to TPP. - Fixed bug with creating resampling histograms on GUI mode. - Miscellaneous code improvements.

Version 2.1.1 changes (July, 2017) - Miscellaneous bug fixes

Version 2.1.0 changes (June, 2017) - Added tooltips next to most parameters to explain their functionality. - Added Quality Control window, with choice for normalization method. - Added more normalization options to the HMM method. - Added LOESS correction functionality back to TRANSIT - Added ability to scale Track View based on mean-count of the window. - Added ability to scale individual tracks in Track View. - Added ability to add tracks of features to Track View. - Better status messages for TrackView - TPP can now accept empty primer prefix (in case reads have been trimmed). - TPP can now process reads obtained using Mme1 enzyme and protocol. - TPP can now pass flags to BWA. - Lots of bug fixes.

Version 2.0.2 changes (August, 2016) - Added support for for custom primers in TPP. - Added support for annotations in GFF3 format. - Ability to specify pseudocounts in resampling. - Misc. Bug fixes - New [mailing list](!forum/tnseq-transit/join)

New in Version 2.0+
  • Support for Tn5 datasets.
  • New analysis methods.
  • New way to export normalized datasets.

Welcome! This is the distribution for the TRANSIT and TPP tools developed by the Ioerger Lab.

TRANSIT is a tool for the analysis of Tn-Seq data. It provides an easy to use graphical interface and access to three different analysis methods that allow the user to determine essentiality in a single condition as well as between conditions.

## Features TRANSIT offers a variety of features including:

  • More than 8 analysis methods, including methods for determining conditional essentiality as well as genetic interactions.
  • Ability to analyze datasets from libraries constructed using himar1 or tn5 transposons.
  • TrackView to help visualize read-counts accross the genome.
  • Can export datasets into a variety of formats, including IGV.
  • Includes a variety of normalization methods.
  • Quality Control diagnostics, to idenfity poor quality datasets.
  • Ability to install as a python package, to import and use in your own personal scripts.
