RNA-seq Data Analysis : A Practical Approach, Mixed media product Book


The State of the Art in Transcriptome AnalysisRNA sequencing (RNA-seq) data offers unprecedented information about the transcriptome, but harnessing this information with bioinformatics tools is typically a bottleneck.

RNA-seq Data Analysis: A Practical Approach enables researchers to examine differential expression at gene, exon, and transcript levels and to discover novel genes, transcripts, and whole transcriptomes. Balanced Coverage of Theory and PracticeEach chapter starts with theoretical background, followed by descriptions of relevant analysis tools and practical examples.

Accessible to both bioinformaticians and nonprogramming wet lab scientists, the examples illustrate the use of command-line tools, R, and other open source tools, such as the graphical Chipster software. The Tools and Methods to Get Started in Your LabTaking readers through the whole data analysis workflow, this self-contained guide provides a detailed overview of the main RNA-seq data analysis methods and explains how to use them in practice.

It is suitable for researchers from a wide variety of backgrounds, including biology, medicine, genetics, and computer science.

The book can also be used in a graduate or advanced undergraduate course.
