  • cufflinks --compatible-hits-norm

    Hi,

    I am testing cufflinks with two different normalization methods: total-hits-norm and compatible-hits-norm. My understanding is that the only difference between these two methods is the FPKM denominator: one is the number of all hits, the other is the number of hits within the reference GTF. So the ratios of FPKM values calculated by two methods should be a single fixed number, which is the ratio of hits. But, the ratios I got is a distribution. Anybody have an idea of the exact meaning of compatible-hits-norm? Thanks!

    sounds fishy. i wanna try this out and see what results i get. I'll report back unless of course someone comes in an explains it.

      Oh I am very sorry! It is my problem: one set was processed slightly differently. :-(

      Thanks, sdriscoll!

        indeed. i tried this today and the difference in FPKM values between the two normalizations was constant out to 4 decimal places.

          Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
          by seqadmin




          The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...

          Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
          by seqadmin


          Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...
