The developmental transcriptome of Drosophila melanogaster

Drosophila melanogaster is an important non-mammalian model system that has had a critical role in basic biological discoveries, such as identifying chromosomes as the carriers of genetic information and uncovering the role of genes in development. However, despite the fact ...

RNAseq Read Alignment Assessment (RGASP) Round 3 is Launched

The RNAseq genome annotation assessment project was launched in 2005 to assess the current progress of automatic gene building using RNAseq as its primary dataset. While the two previous RGASP challenges evaluated computational methods used to estimate gene and transcript ...

Estimating Gene Expression Levels from RNA-Seq Data

Researchers compare two strategies for estimating gene expression levels from RNA-seq data. The estimation of genes’ transcript abundance levels or gene expression levels is an important question in research on the transcriptional regulation and gene functions. There are two commonly ...

iAssembler for assembly of ESTs

iAssembler is a standalone package to assemble ESTs generated using Sanger and/or Roche-454 pyrosequencing technologies into contigs. The pipeline gives much higher accuracy in EST assembly than other existing assemblers by employing an iterative assembly strategy and automated error corrections ...
