De novo genome assembly: what every biologist should know : Nature Methods

How deep is deep enough for RNA-Seq profiling of bacterial transcriptomes?

Silence | Abstract | Strand-specific libraries for high throughput RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) prepared without poly(A) selection

BMC Genomics | Abstract | Comparison of metagenomic samples using sequence signatures

Peak identification for ChIP-seq data with no controls.

TrueSight: a new algorithm for splice junction detection using RNA-seq

DiffCorr: An R package to analyze and visualize differential correlations in biological networks.
