Snaptron: querying splicing patterns across tens of thousands of RNA seq samples

PMCID: 5870547
PMID: 28968689
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx547

[…] a table summarizing evidence for exon-exon splice junctions across all samples. We also created tables detailing metadata for each sample. This is the source material for Snaptron as well as for the intropolis resource (). Snaptron also annotates each junction with: (i) gene annotation status (), (ii) count of samples with one or more reads covering the junction and (iii) junction coverage statis […]


Human splicing diversity and the extent of unannotated splice junctions across human RNA seq samples on the Sequence Read Archive

Genome Biol
PMCID: 5203714
PMID: 28038678
DOI: 10.1186/s13059-016-1118-6

[…] ground variation in junction discovery levels. We have shown evidence that some unannotated and partially annotated junctions in human have translated analogs in mouse. We have introduced a resource, intropolis, for others to investigate junction variation, and we have provided an example of the utility of our resource in the case of ALK gene expression.While we observed many unannotated junctions […]
