SNPlice – identify cis-acting, splice-modulating variants from RNA-seq datasets

SNPlice – identify cis-acting, splice-modulating variants from RNA-seq datasets

The growing recognition of the importance of splicing in eukaryotes, together with rapidly accumulating RNA-sequencing data, demand robust high-throughput approaches, which efficiently analyze experimentally derived whole-transcriptome splice profiles. Researchers from The George Washington University have developed a computational approach, called ...

Rcount – simple and flexible RNA-Seq read counting

Analysis of differential gene expression by RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) is frequently done using feature counts, i.e. the number of reads mapping to a gene. However, commonly used count algorithms (e.g. HTSeq) do not address the problem of reads aligning with ...
