Hi, I am currently reading a paper (Figure 3b) where they use CAGE-seq data as an input for StringTie, to assemble isoforms.
I am very confused how this is possible, since I thought that only produces very short reads (~30bp) at the 5' end of our mRNA. I understand how StringTie works with RNAseq data, but I have no idea how it works with Cage-seq because of the short reads which should be located manily at the 5'end.
Am I missing something obvious? Or can somebody explain to me how it works.
Any help is much appreciated!
