Cross species inference of long non coding RNAs greatly expands the ruminant transcriptome

PMCID: 5926538
PMID: 29690875
DOI: 10.1186/s12711-018-0391-0

[…] 00 bp and was not associated, on the same strand, with a known protein-coding locus. The fourfold difference in the length of each longlist can be attributed to the relative size of each dataset. The sheep atlas contains 8 times as many RNA-seq libraries, spans multiple developmental stages (from embryonic to adult), and has a subset of its samples that was specifically prepared to ensure the comp […]


Integration of quantitated expression estimates from polyA selected and rRNA depleted RNA seq libraries

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5470212
PMID: 28610557
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-1714-9

[…] hese reads are unlikely to be assembled into variants of an existing gene because if such a gene existed, Kallisto would have mapped reads to it.Based upon our analysis of much larger datasets in the sheep atlas, the variance introduced by the RNA selection method is much greater than from any other batch effect, although these must still be accounted for as a matter of best practice (see review [ […]
