RNA-Seq Enabling Proteomic Studies

Effective proteome profiling is generally considered to depend heavily on the availability of a high-quality DNA reference database. As such, proteomics has long been taxonomically restricted, with limited inroads being made into the proteomes of “non-model” organisms. However, next generation ...

RNA-SeQC for RNA-Seq Datasets

RNA-SeQC is a program which provides key measures of data quality for RNA-seq datasets. These metrics include yield, alignment and duplication rates; GC bias, rRNA content, regions of alignment (exon, intron, intragenic), continuity of coverage, 3’/5’ bias, and count of ...

RSeQC – RNA-seq quality control package

RSeQC package provides a number of useful modules that can comprehensively evaluate high throughput sequence data especially RNA-seq data. “Basic modules” quickly inspect sequence quality, nucleotide composition bias, PCR bias and GC bias, while “RNA-seq specific modules” investigate sequencing saturation ...

MapAl – a tool for RNA-Seq expression profiling

MapAl is a tool for RNA-Seq expression profiling that builds on the established programs Bowtie and Cufflinks. In the post-processing of RNA-Seq reads, it incorporates gene models already at the stage of read alignment, increasing the number of reliably measured ...
