Evaluation and comparison of computational tools for RNA seq isoform quantification

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5547501
PMID: 28784092
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4002-1

[…] Fifty million paired-end reads were generated by the RSEM RNA-seq simulator based upon the read distribution statistics taken from experimental sample HBRR-C4. Table summarizes the features and running metrics for all the eight methods (seven packages plus […]


Evaluation of Alignment Algorithms for Discovery and Identification of Pathogens Using RNA Seq

PLoS One
PMCID: 3813700
PMID: 24204709
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0076935

[…] ss using technology-specific error models for indels, SNPs and base quality values, but augments it with the capability to simulate RNA-Seq data. To the best of our knowledge the only other realistic RNA-Seq simulator published to date is BEER . BEER, however, cannot be used for data simulation of reference genomes other than human.Although recently published benchmarking studies , did assess and […]
