[…] abundances that would be most likely given the observed data (i.e. the alignments of the sequenced fragments to the underlying genome or transcriptome). bayesian methodologies such as bitseq () and tigar () were also developed and adopt different inferential approaches varying from fully bayesian approaches like collapsed gibbs sampling () to approximate inference approaches like variational […]

[…] the probability of a read originating from a given reference sequence. there exist a number of methods solving the same problem there including rsem (; ), cufflinks (), miso (), bitseq (; ), tigar (, ), express (), sailfish () and many others. these are all based on different inference methods applied to the same probabilistic model first proposed in (). this is also essentially […]

[…] option (16 cores; fig. ) is used. in particular, the times required to process the alignments of 100 million in silico-generated reads range between approximately 7 min (isoem) and more than 1 week (tigar2) when a single processor is used, and between about 5 min (isoem) and 8 h (rsem) when 16 cores are available for the tools that support multi-threading (tigar2 does not). with the exception […]
