[…] The initial whole transcriptome paired-end reads obtained from the sequencing were mapped against the latest version of the human genome (Version GRchr37/hg19) by using the Life Technologies mapping algorithm ( The aligned records were reported in the BAM/SAM format . Bad quality reads (Phred score <10) were eliminated using the Picard Tools software .The isoform and gene predictions were subsequently estimated using the cufflinks method , and the expression levels were calculated using the HTSeq software . The Edge method was applied to analyze the differential expression between conditions . This method relies on a Poisson model to estimate the RNAseq data variance for differential expression. We selected genes and isoforms that were calculated to exhibit p value<0.05 and fold-change >1.5. […]
