[…] greatly increases computational effort, hampering quantitative results per genome. consequently the rna reads are not separated and traced back to their (sub-) genome. algorithms like polycat and hands2 process reads based on classification towards their genome of origin, but heavily depend on the presence and the quality of reference genomes,. since not all cultivars of interest carry […]
