Clustering coefficient-based Acquisition of RNA Communities in Long Reads

Keywords: Transcriptomics - Clustering - Bioinformatics

Functional Description: Carnac-LR is a clustering method for third generation sequencing data. Used on RNA sequences it retrieves all sequences that relate to a same gene and put them in a cluster. CARNAC-LR is an efficient implementation of a novel clustering algorithm for detecting communities in a graph of reads from Third Generation Sequencing. It is a part of a pipeline that allows to retrieve expressed variants from each gene de novo (without reference genome/transcriptome), for transcriptomic sequencing data.
