ALDEx2 – characterizing RNA-seq, 16S rRNA gene sequencing and selective growth experiments by compositional data analysis

rna-seq

Experimental designs that take advantage of high-throughput sequencing to generate datasets include RNA sequencing (RNA-seq), chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing (ChIP-seq), sequencing of 16S rRNA gene fragments, metagenomic analysis and selective growth experiments. In each case the underlying data are similar and ...
