RNA modifications are a common occurrence across all domains of life. Several chemical modifications, including N-6-methyladenosine, have also been found in viral transcripts and viral RNA genomes. Some of the modifications increase the viral replication efficiency while also helping the virus to evade the host immune system. Nonetheless, there are numerous examples in which the host's RNA modification enzymes function as antiviral factors. Although established methods like MeRIP-seq and miCLIP can provide a transcriptome- wide overview of how viral RNA is modified, it is difficult to distinguish between the complex overlapping viral transcript isoforms using the short read-based techniques. Nanopore direct RNA sequencing (DRS) provides both long reads and direct signal readings, which may carry information about the modifications. Here, we describe a refined protocol for analyzing the RNA modifications in viral transcriptomes using nanopore technology.
