Guide to aligning RNA seq data

The purpose of this tutorial is to guide users from the raw FASTQ files produced by the sequencer to obtaining aligned short reads to human and non-human (pathogen) references in the sequence Alignment/Map (SAM) report format. In this tutorial we ...

How Many Reads are Enough?

There is no question that RNA-Seq has several major advantages over current hybridization-based approach such as microarrays. However, with the cost per sample of RNA-Seq still much higher than microarray, it would be beneficial if multiple samples could be multiplexed ...
