A comparison of De novo short read sequence assemblers

rna-seq

The sequencing, de novo assembly and annotation of transcriptome datasets generated with next generation sequencing (NGS) has enabled biologists to answer genomic questions in non-model species with unprecedented ease. Reliable and accurate de novo assembly and annotation of transcriptomes, however, ...

bagSVM – Classification of RNA-Seq Data via Bagging Support Vector Machines

RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) is a powerful technique for transcriptome profiling of the organisms that uses the capabilities of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies. Recent advances in NGS let to measure the expression levels of tens to thousands of transcripts simultaneously. Using ...

JAGuaR: Junction Alignments to Genome for RNA-Seq Reads

rna-seq

JAGuaR is an alignment protocol for RNA-seq reads that uses an extended reference to increase alignment sensitivity. It uses BWA to align reads to the genome and reference transcript models (including annotated exon-exon junctions) specifically allowing for the possibility of ...

iRegulon: From a Gene List to a Gene Regulatory Network

rna-seq

Identifying master regulators of biological processes and mapping their downstream gene networks are key challenges in systems biology. Researchers at the KU Leuven Center for Human Genetics developed a computational method, called iRegulon, to reverse-engineer the transcriptional regulatory network underlying ...
