De novo transcriptome assemblies are required to analyze RNA-seq data from a species for which there is no reference genome. However, with the advancement of next-generation sequencing technologies, the amount of available sequencing data is growing exponentially. Because of this, assembly algorithms often generate a large number of transcripts. Removing redundancy from such data could be crucial for reducing storage space,

OmicsBox/Blast2GO provides an interface to create, edit and run workflows based on the Common Workflow Language (CWL) specification. This interface allows to describe all analysis steps using the functions and tools offered by Blast2GO and connect them to perform a complete analysis in a single run. This video shows step-by-step how to create a workflow from scratch, define the input
The Transcript-level Quantification feature of OmicsBox/Blast2GO allows quantifying the gene and isoform expression of RNA-seq datasets. This video shows step-by-step how to create a count table of aligned sequencing reads and explains in detail the different concepts of expression quantification at transcript level. The application is based on the RSEM software package, which assigns reads to the isoforms they came
The “Create Count Table” feature of OmicsBox/Blast2GO allows quantifying the gene expression of RNA-seq datasets. This video shows step-by-step how to create a count table of raw reads and explains in detail different concepts of expression quantification. The available parameters are inspired by the popular HTSeq Python Package (reference below).
The Time Course Expression Analysis tool allows performing a differential expression analysis of expression data arising from a time course RNA-seq experiment. This application is based on the maSigPro Bioconductor package, which implements a two-step regression strategy to detect genes with significant temporal expression changes and significant differences between experimental groups. This video shows the analysis of count data coming
The Pairwise Differential Expression Analysis tool is designed to perform differential expression analysis of count data arising from an RNA-seq experiment. The application, which is based on the software package “edgeR”, allows the identification of differentially expressed genes between two experimental conditions by applying quantitative statistical methods. This video shows the performance of a pairwise differential expression analysis in which
