Ribosome profiling provides the opportunity to evaluate translation kinetics at codon level resolution. Here, we describe ribosome profiling data, generated from two HEK293T cell lines. The ribosome profiling data are composed of Ribo-seq (mRNA sequencing data from ribosome protected fragments) and RNA-seq data (total RNA sequencing). The two HEK293T cell lines each express a version of the F9 gene, both of which are translated into identical proteins in terms of their amino acid sequences.

Further analyzing this dataset holds great potential as it can be used i) to unveil insights into the composition and regulation of the transcriptome, ii) for comparison with other ribosome profiling datasets, iii) to measure the rate of protein synthesis across the proteome and identify differences in elongation rates, iv) to discover previously unidentified translation of peptides, v) to explore the effects of codon usage or codon context in translational kinetics and vi) to investigate cotranslational folding. Importantly, a unique feature of this dataset, compared to other available ribosome profiling data, is the presence of the F9 gene in two very distinct coding sequences.
