Trans-ABySS | De novo assembly and analysis of RNA-seq data

Allows users to analyze ABySS-assembled contigs from shotgun transcriptome data. Trans-ABySS is a standalone software composed of two modules: transabyss that performs assembling of RNAseq data and transabyss-merge that allows to merge assemblies derived from the first feature. The application includes a gene-level expression metric based on reads aligned to contigs that can be used with or without an annotated reference genome.
