    That is a good explanation. Thank you McG

    The section of the Cufflinks manual discussing library normalization methods (http://cufflinks.cbcb.umd.edu/manual...rary_norm_meth) states that Cufflinks-supported normalization methods only work on one library at a time, while Cuffdiff-supported methods work on all of the libraries being examined. So, the quartile-norm method is similar in both Cufflinks' --upper-quartile-norm and Cuffdiff's --library-norm-method quartile methods (normalizing to the upper quartile of fragments mapping to loci). However, in cufflinks with --upper-quartile-norm, the normalization looks at the upper quartile in just the one library being examined, whereas in cuffdiff with --library-norm-method quartile, the normalization looks at the upper quartile of mapped fragments across the whole set of samples. Does that make sense?

    As I'm also new to the use of Cufflinks and Cuffdiff, you can take my response with a grain of salt (and someone who is more knowledge can step in to correct me if I'm wrong).

  • CuffLinksLibrary Normalization Methods: classic-fpkm vs -N/--upper-quartile-norm

    According to the Cufflinks manual, the only option for library normalization is the "classic-fpkm" method. However, under Advanced Abundance Estimation Options there is an option to include "-N/--upper-quartile-norm" which seems similar to the "quartile" library normalization option available for CuffDiff but not CuffLinks.

    I am not much of a statistician, so can anyone please explain to me the difference between the --upper-quartile-norm and --library-norm-method quartile methods.

    Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
    by seqadmin


    The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...
