Unspliced Mapping Tools

DART – novel RNA-seq de novo mapping algorithm

rna-seq

In recent years, the massively-parallel cDNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) technologies have become a powerful tool to provide high resolution measurement of expression and high sensitivity in detecting low abundance transcripts. However, RNA-seq data requires a huge amount of computational efforts. The ...

Comprehensive benchmarking of RNA-Seq aligners

Alignment is the first step in most RNA-seq analysis pipelines, and the accuracy of downstream analyses depends heavily on it. Unlike most steps in the pipeline, alignment is particularly amenable to benchmarking with simulated data. Researchers from the University of ...

Optimizing RNA-Seq Mapping with STAR

rna-seq

Sequencing of transcribed RNA molecules (RNA-seq) is an invaluable tool for studying cell transcriptomes at high resolution and depth. RNA-seq datasets typically consist of tens to hundreds of millions of relatively short (30–200 nt) sequence fragments of the original RNA ...
