[…] specificity (more than 5%) in read-data associated with poorly expressed isoforms. Wei Wang (University of California, Los Angeles, USA) presented a post-assembler tool using support vector machines, GeneScissors, to correct misaligned fragments in RNA-seq caused by sequence repeats and errors (more than 88% precision and recall; 54% fewer pseudogenes than from the TopHat/Cufflinks pipeline). Bo X […]
