Moreover bcbio-nextgen provides a python framework to run a whole pipeline for small RNA (miRNA + tRNA + piRNA + others).

An example of how to run with bcbio is here:

In case you want to use seqcluster alone, a complete tutorial is here:


Seqcluster creates html report that looks like this. That is a table of all cluster detected, and you can go into each of them and get a complete description with profile expression figures, annotation details and sequences counts for each sample. An interactive report is as well available to explore the expression profile, position on the genome and secondary structure. Learn more
