Authors: Wouter De Coster, Endre Bakken Stovner, Mojca Strazisar

Modified nucleotides play a crucial role in gene expression regulation. Here we describe methplotlib, a tool developed for the visualization of modified nucleotides detected from Oxford Nanopore Technologies sequencing platforms, together with additional scripts for statistical analysis of allele specific modification within subjects and differential modification frequency across subjects.

Availability and implementation
The methplotlib command-line tool is written in Python3, is compatible with Linux, Mac OS and the MS Windows 10 Subsystem for Linux and released under the MIT license. The source code can be found at and can be installed from PyPI and bioconda. Our repository includes test data and the tool is continuously tested at
