RNA-Seq in the Zebrafish gene build


This talk is by John Collins from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. He explains how RNA-Seq data were incorporated into the zebrafish Ensembl gene build. This is an example of creating a gene-build combining RNA-Seq with other data, improving its quality.

He describes how RNA libraries were created from adult and embryonic zebrafish tissues and prepped for Illumina sequencing. He describes RNA-Seq was used to define 3' ends by enriching for polyA tails and trimming, thus improving 3' end prediction.
