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

rna-seq

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. ...

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 ...
