Hi,

I have single end data mRNA sequenced by TruSeq stranded mRNA library prep Kit. For quantization i need to know if are reversely stranded or forward stranded.

Do you have an idea which option should I choose?

Thank you in advance

Hi Kamel,

Your data might be reversely stranded but I think you need to investigate more and also check with the facility that did the sequencing. You can use infer_experiment.py program from the ResQC package to "guess" the directionality of your data. You can alternatively visualise your data with IGV. A couple more useful resources are the following:

  1. Directional RNA-seq data which parameters to choose? (Chipster manual)
  2. Table S5 from Malachi Griffith et al.

Hope this helps,

Matina

Why don't you just try each, and see what happens? One should look terrible, and one should look fine. That's likely faster than waiting for someone to spoon-feed you the answer here.
