Hi. I am new for performing RNA-Seq. I have got the sequencing raw reads (PE) for my samples from Arabidopsis thaliana plants. I have analysed these reads using FASTQC. Now I have to do the alignment and mapping of these reads with the refrence genome. In this regard my first question is, should I do any further cleaning or processing for my reads before alignment. And should I have to merge the pair-end reads? Second question is which aligner should I use? I have tried with BWA, Bowtie2 and STAR, and I got the maximum alignment with STAR. Other question is which source I should use for the reference genome. Like TAIR10, Araprot11 or

I will be grateful if you may guide me for my analysis.
