    Thanks Kevin. I am new to bioinformatics and just beginning to understand the nuances of data analysis. Although I understand that TopHat aligns split-reads across splice junctions, I need to know which of the MANY aligners are actually better over the others and why?

    Even though there might be many tools, I need to know why I should prefer to use a tool and not others. I hope you could shed some light on this difficult question. I work with mouse and human data and need to use spilce-junction reads for the analysis.

    Thanks!
