Designing alternative splicing RNA-seq studies

rna-seq

D esigning an RNA-seq study depends critically on its specific goals, technology and underlying biology, which renders general guidelines inadequate.  A team led by researchers at IRB Barcelona have developed a Bayesian framework to customize experiments so that goals can ...

SUPPA – a super-fast pipeline for alternative splicing analysis from RNA-Seq

rna-seq

High-throughput RNA sequencing allows genome-wide analyses of pre-mRNA splicing across multiple conditions. However, the increasing number of available datasets represents a major challenge in terms of time and storage required for analyses. Now, a team led by researchers at the ...

Incorporating alternative splicing and mRNA editing into the genetic analysis of complex traits

rna-seq

The nomination of candidate genes underlying complex traits is often focused on genetic variations that alter mRNA abundance or result in non-conservative changes in amino acids. Although inconspicuous in complex trait analysis, genetic variants that affect splicing or RNA editing ...
