Predict coding regions within transcripts in OmicsBox with TransDecoder

Most transcripts assembled from eukaryotic and prokaryotic RNA-Seq data are expected to code for proteins. The most practical procedure to identify likely coding transcripts is a sequence homology search, such as by BLASTX, against sequences from well-annotated and related species. Predicting coding regions is crucial to determine the molecular role that transcripts play in the cell. Unfortunately, such well-annotated nearby

Cell-Type Identification via Functional Enrichment Analysis of Single-Cell RNA-Seq Data

  Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) has proven its usefulness in deciphering biological processes. Since it allows the study of samples at the cell level, it provides a more detailed view of the underlying biology.  A nearly mandatory step in any scRNA-seq analysis is to identify the cell types present in the analyzed samples so further biological insights can be obtained.
