Genome-guided transcriptome assembly software tools | RNA sequencing data analysis
A reference-based or genome-guided transcriptome assembly algorithm uses alignments of reads to the genome that are produced by a specialized spliced-alignment tool, such as TopHat2 or GSNAP, to identify clusters of reads that represent potential transcripts. It then builds transcript assemblies from these alignments. If paired-end reads are available, they improve the ability of the assembler to link together exons belonging to the same transcript.
Assembles transcripts, estimates their abundances, and tests for differential expression and regulation in RNA-Seq samples. Cufflinks assembles individual transcripts from RNA-seq reads that have been aligned to the genome. This software is able to infer the splicing structure of each gene because reads from multiple splice variants for a given gene can be found in a sample. Quantification of transcript abundances is also possible by preferring a reference annotation to assembling the reads.
Allows users to handle RNA-sequencing pipeline based on the TopHat, Cufflinks and CummeRbund suite of software. Tuxedo is a program that enables assessment of alternative splicing (AS) inferred on fragments per kilobase per million (FPKM) values. It can assist researchers to detect genes and splicing variants and compare gene expression and transcripts under different conditions.
Builds transcriptomes from RNA-seq data. Trinity is a standalone software composed of three main components: (i) Inchworm, that first generates transcript contigs; (ii) Chrysalis, for clustering them and constructing complete de Bruijn graphs for each cluster and; (iii) Butterfly that processes individual graphs in parallel for finally resulting to the reconstruction of the transcript sequences.
A comprehensive and user-friendly system for computational analysis of bacterial RNA-seq data. As input, Rockhopper takes RNA sequencing reads output by high-throughput sequencing technology (FASTQ, QSEQ, FASTA, SAM, or BAM files). Rockhopper supports the following tasks: reference based transcript assembly; de novo transcript assembly; normalizing data from different experiments; quantifying transcript abundance; testing for differential gene expression; characterizing operon structures; visualizing results in a genome browser.
Enables reconstruction of a transcriptome from RNA-seq reads. StringTie uses a genome-guided transcriptome assembly approach along with concepts from de novo genome assembly to improve transcript assembly. Successively this tool: first groups the reads into clusters, then creates a splice graph for each cluster from which it identifies transcripts, and then for each transcript it creates a separate flow network to estimate its expression level.
Serves as a transcriptome reconstruction method. Scripture is able to reconstruct a mammalian transcriptome with no prior knowledge of gene annotations. It exploits longer reads that span splice junctions to link discontiguous (spliced) segments. This software identifies short but strongly expressed transcripts, lower transcripts with aggregate evidence and precise gene structures for most of found lincRNA loci.
Consists of a collection of investigation approaches and displays software for microarray data. Chipster is useful for several types of high throughput data such as microarrays, proteomics and next generation sequencing (NGS). It can be employed to normalize most of the commonly used chip types and permits to utilize the remapped information. This tool is useful for RNA degradation, relative log expression (RLE), normalized unscaled standard error (NUSE) or quality control probe expression.
