FX: an RNA-Seq analysis tool on the cloud

FX is an RNA-Seq analysis tool, which runs in parallel on cloud computing infrastructure, for the estimation of gene expression levels and genomic variant calling. In the mapping of short RNA-Seq reads, FX uses a transcriptome-based reference primarily, generated from ∼160,000 mRNA sequences from RefSeq, UCSC and Ensembl databases. This approach reduces the misalignment of … Read more
