Best practices in RNA-seq data analysis
RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has become an indispensable tool to characterize transcriptomes and understand the molecular indicators of disease and treatment. It is a powerful technology to study gene expression and discover novel isoforms, in addition to which RNA-seq has proven to be highly useful technique to discover expressed coding variants, deep intronic mutations, and fusion-transcripts. In this talk, I will describe how we at the FIMM sequencing center process RNA-seq data from model organisms and will give a sneak preview to the upcoming new analysis features we are developing at the moment.
