  • What Junk DNA? It’s an Operating System

    The report adds to growing experimental support for the idea that all that extra stuff in the human genes, once referred to as “junk DNA,” is more than functionless, space-filling material that happens to make up nearly 98% of the genome. The paper adds to a growing body of knowledge ...

  • RNA Sequencing Helps Identify Functional Variants from GWAS

    For Alzheimer’s and other complex disorders, mining the genome for disease-associated variants is no longer the obstacle. The challenge nowadays is figuring out how the identified loci relate to disease. As reported last month in Nature and its associated journals, advances in high-throughp...

  • R-chie

    R-chie allows you to make arc diagrams of RNA secondary structures, allowing for easy comparison and overlap of two structures, rank and display basepairs in colour and to also visualize corresponding multiple sequence alignments and co-variation information.R4RNA is the R package power...

  • MIRO : miRNA omics

    The MIRO (the miRNA omics) pipeline is a flexible and powerful tool for the analysis of miRNA (or more generall short RNA) expression using short-read deep sequencing data. In its present implementation MIRO is especially adapted for the analysis of reads generated with the Illumina sequencing pl...

  • Barrnap: Bacterial ribosomal RNA predictor

    Barrnap predicts the location of ribosomal RNA genes in genomes. It supports bacteria (5S,23S,16S), archaea (5S,5.8S,23S,16S), mitochondria (12S,16S) and eukaryotes (5S,5.8S,28S,18S). It takes FASTA DNA sequence as input, and write GFF3 as output. It uses the new NHMMER tool that comes with HMME...
