[…] adult and elderly () – and implemented an annotation-agnostic differential expression analysis to leverage the power of rna-seq without the difficulties of transcript assembly . this method, called derfinder, identifies differential expression at base-pair resolution, and forms differentially expressed regions (ders) by joining adjacent differentially expressed bases. we tested for differences […]
