  • Announcing Xpression, an integrated RNA-seq analysis pipeline

    We are pleased to announce the release of Xpression, an integrated RNA-seq analysis pipeline.

    Xpression automatically processes quality filtering, mapping, expression profiling, and visualization from short read-length NGS reads in nucleotide-space (e.g., Illumina). It currently uses BWA to map reads, which allows a specified number of mismatches between read and reference genome. The expression profile provides normalization for reads per million (pM) and per million-kilobase (pKM). It can also take read orientation of the reads into account if strand-specificity was maintained during the library-prep method.

    This pipeline can be run on UNIX-like systems via the command-line or graphically via Java. To run Xpression on any system, such as Windows, a fully-configured virtualized environment is also provided. This environment needs software such as VirtualBox to run, which can be downloaded and installed with a standard point-and-click wizard interface.

    The Integrative Genomics Viewer (Broad) is recommended for viewing the wiggle-format visualization files, and we have found Tablet to be a good choice for viewing the sorted bam files.

    Additionally, the design of the tool allows flexible use and easy modification to suit specific needs.

    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...
