Comprehensive benchmarking of RNA-Seq aligners

Alignment is the first step in most RNA-seq analysis pipelines, and the accuracy of downstream analyses depends heavily on it. Unlike most steps in the pipeline, alignment is particularly amenable to benchmarking with simulated data. Researchers from the University of ...

An RNA-Seq QC Overview

rna-seq

Quality control (QC) is a critical step in RNA sequencing (RNA-seq). Yet, it is often ignored or conducted on a limited basis. Here, Vanderbilt University researchers present a multi-perspective strategy for QC of RNA-seq experiments. The QC of RNA-seq can ...

RNA-Seq Alignment and Visualization

rna-seq

Canadian Bioinformatics Workshops – Informatics for RNA-sequence Analysis (QC) (2014) – Module 2 – RNA-seq alignment and visualization High-throughput sequencing of RNA libraries (RNA-seq) has become increasingly common and largely supplanted gene microarrays for transcriptome profiling. When processed appropriately, RNA-seq ...
