• Splice-aware RNA-Seq data simulation

    1 month ago - By Oxford Journals

    AbstractSummaryA plethora of tools exist for RNA-Seq data analysis with a focus on alternative splicing. However, appropriate data for their comparative evaluation is missing. The R package ASimulatoR simulates gold standard RNA-Seq datasets with fine-grained control over the distribution of AS events, which allow for evaluating alternative splicing tools, e.g. to study the effect of sequencing depth on the performance of AS event detection.Availability and implementationASimulatoR is freely available at as an R package under GPL-3 license.
