Is FPM the only normalisation method recommended for CircRNAs?

Hi all,

I have a question. For circRNAs detected by RNA-seq, I've read various articles suggesting to use FPM (Fragments per million mapped reads) for normalisation of the raw counts. Is it wrong to use FPKM for circRNA normalisation - the difference being FPKM also corrects for the gene length.

Thanks and best!

Hey,

Can you cite the sources? FPKM may correct for gene length, but it fails to correct for cross-sample differences.
