A survey of best practices for RNA-seq data analysis

A survey of best practices for RNA-seq data analysis

RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) has a wide variety of applications, but no single analysis pipeline can be used in all cases. A multi-national team led by researchers from the University of Florida reviews all of the major steps in RNA-seq data analysis, including ...

RNA sequencing of the nephron transcriptome: a technical note

RNA sequencing of the nephron transcriptome: a technical note

To understand the functions of the kidney, the transcriptome of each part of the nephron needs to be profiled using a highly sensitive and unbiased tool. RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has revolutionized transcriptomic research, enabling researchers to define transcription activity and ...

Isoform-level gene expression patterns in single-cell RNA-sequencing data

Isoform-level gene expression patterns in single-cell RNA-sequencing data

RNA-sequencing of single-cells enables characterization of transcriptional heterogeneity in seemingly homogenous cell populations. In this study, reseachers from the Karolinska Institute propose and apply a novel method, ISOform-Patterns (ISOP), based on mixture modeling, to characterize the expression patterns of pairs ...

FRAMA – from RNA-seq data to annotated mRNA assemblies

FRAMA – from RNA-seq data to annotated mRNA assemblies

Advances in second-generation sequencing of RNA made a near-complete characterization of transcriptomes affordable. However, the reconstruction of full-length mRNAs via de novo RNA-seq assembly is still difficult due to the complexity of eukaryote transcriptomes with highly similar paralogs and multiple ...

RNA22 version 2.0 – miRNA-MRE predictions

RNA22 version 2.0 – miRNA-MRE predictions

Researchers at Thomas Jefferson University present rna22, a method for identifying microRNA binding sites and their corresponding heteroduplexes. Rna22 does not rely upon cross-species conservation, is resilient to noise, and, unlike previous methods, it first finds putative microRNA binding sites ...
