RNA-SeQC

RNA-SeQC is a java program which computes a series of quality control metrics for RNA-seq data. The input can be one or more BAM files. The output consists of HTML reports and tab delimited files of metrics data. This program can be valuable for comparing sequencing quality across different samples or experiments to evaluate different experimental parameters. It can also be run on individual samples as a means of quality control before continuing with downstream analysis.

Availability and Restrictions

The following versions of RNA-SeQC are available on OSC clusters:

Version Oakley Owens
1.1.8 X* X*
*: Current default version

You can use  module spider rna-seqc  to view available modules for a given machine. Feel free to contact OSC Help if you need other versions for your work.

Access

RNA-SeQC is available to all OSC users without restriction.

Usage on Oakley

Set-up

To configure your environment for use of RNA-SeQC, run the following command:   module load rna-seqc . The default version will be loaded. To select a particular RNA-SeQC version, use   module load rna-seqc/version. For example, use  module load rna-seqc/1.1.8  to load RNA-SeQC 1.1.8.

Usage

This software is a Java executable .jar file; thus, it is not possible to add to the PATH environment variable.

From module load rna-seqc, a new environment variable, RNA_SEQC, will be set.

Thus, users can use the software by running the following command: java -jar $RNA_SEQC {other options}
