CPTRA | A software package for cross-platform transcriptome analysis

Analyzes transcriptome sequencing data from different sequencing platforms including Solexa and SOLiD short. CPTRA is a software allowing the merging of various data to identify novel genes in species. The application first groups every sequence tags and gives a count number for each of these. Then, it aligns them to the cDNA sequences according specified rules for finally using the results to calculate normalized expression counts for each cDNA sequence.
