Cole Trapnell: RNA-Seq

Cole Trapnell ( focuses on isoform-resolution analysis of RNA -seq. RNA-seq is an assay used to determine the abundance of RNA transcripts in a transcriptome, the results of which can be used for gene discovery and expression analysis. In his talk Cole highlights the inherent challenges associated with the analysis of isoform-resolution data and proposes several different areas that are open for improvement. This talk was presented at VIZBI 2013, an international conference series on visualizing biological data ( This video was filmed and distributed with permission under a Creative Commons license.
