I'm not sure if I understand your question, however for detection of A to I RNA editing you need to sequence both the genomic DNA and RNA. If editing occurs you will only see an "A" in the DNA sequence but at the same genomic position in the cDNA (RNA) you will see both As and Gs.
Have a look at this publication for more info:
"Genome-wide identification of human RNA editing sites by parallel DNA capturing and sequencing" Science. 2009 May 29;324(5931):1210-3.
