Sailfish-cir in pipeline

PMCID: 5828303
PMID: 29248507
DOI: 10.1016/j.ebiom.2017.12.007

[…] we quantified the expression values of all identified circular transcripts and known linear transcripts in the ensembl () human gene annotation (release 87) using our recent developed tool, sailfish-cir (), with default settings. for each host gene, the transcripts per million (tpm) values of both linear and circular transcripts were recorded. these circrna identification […]

[…] we sequenced four rrna-depleted rna-seq libraries of human pbmc samples in the discovery cohort (supplementary table s3). the expression of both mrnas and circrnas was simultaneously quantified by sailfish-cir (). in total, 5175 parental genes were found to express circular transcripts in these four human pbmc samples, among which the circular transcripts of 131 parental genes were highly […]
