Arkas – Rapid reproducible RNA-Seq analysis

rna-seq

The recently introduced Kallisto pseudoaligner has radically simplified the quantification of transcripts in RNA-sequencing experiments.  Researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of USC offer cloud-scale RNAseq pipelines Arkas-Quantification, which deploys Kallisto for parallel cloud computations, and Arkas-Analysis, which annotates ...

Reproducible Bioinformatics Project

Reproducible research is a key component of the scientific method and represents the ability of repeating an experiment in any place with any person. A study can be truly reproducible when it satisfies at least the following three criteria. – ...

Correcting droplet-based single-cell RNA-seq experiments

rna-seq

Single-cell RNA-seq protocols provide powerful means for examining the gamut of cell types and transcriptional states that comprise complex biological tissues. Recently-developed approaches based on droplet microfluidics, such as inDrop or Drop-seq, use massively multiplexed barcoding to enable simultaneous measurements ...
