TransPS specifications


Unique identifier OMICS_11469
Name TransPS
Software type Pipeline/Workflow
Interface Command line interface
Restrictions to use None
Input data Input to TransPS includes the set of preassembled contigs and the BLASTX search results containing the alignment of the contigs to the set of reference amino acid sequences.
Output data The output of TransPS includes contigs in three different groups, accepted contigs (A), scaffolded contigs (S), and unused/redundant contigs (R). The contigs in R could be the real redundancy due to genetic variants or different transcripts due to alternative splicing. In order to provide users with detailed account of how the assembly of a particular config is done, a matching map between the original contigs and the corresponding reference protein sequences used in the scaffolding algorithm is also provided.

[…] including a widely used de novo assembler (trinity), two transcriptome re-assembly strategies utilizing proteomic and genomic resources from closely related species (reference-based re-assembly and transps) and a genome-guided assembler (cufflinks)., these four assembly strategies were compared using a comprehensive transcriptomic database of aedes albopictus, for which a genome sequence […]
