QuickMIRSeq: a pipeline for quick and accurate quantification of both known miRNAs and isomiRs

http://bmcbioinformatics.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12859-017-1601-4 Genome-wide miRNA expression data can be used to study miRNA dysregulation comprehensively. Although many open-source tools for microRNA (miRNA)-seq data analyses are available, challenges remain in accurate miRNA quantification from large-scale miRNA-seq dataset. We implemented a pipeline called QuickMIRSeq ...
