Application of RNA-seq to the comprehensive analysis of plant mitochondrial transcriptomes


Researchers at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic propose ways to improve read mapping accuracy and sensitivity such as modifying a reference genome at RNA editing sites, using splicing- and ambiguity-competent aligners, and masking chloroplast- or nucleus-derived sequences. ...

SAT-Assembler – A Scalable and Accurate Targeted Gene Assembly Tool for Next-Generation Sequencing Data

Gene assembly, which recovers gene segments from short reads, is an important step in functional analysis of next-generation sequencing data. Lacking quality reference genomes, de novo assembly is commonly used for RNA-Seq data of non-model organisms and metagenomic data. However, ...
