[…] in publicly available rna-seq datasets is missed by annotation, we aligned 21,504 illumina-sequenced human rna-seq samples from the sequence read archive (sra) to the hg19 genome assembly with rail-rna [] and compared exon-exon junction calls to exon-exon junctions from annotated transcripts. we compared exon-exon junctions rather than full transcripts because junction calls from short […]
