I am trying to merge the different RNA-Seq raw data available on NCBI-SRA corresponding to different studies to make a denovo-assembly. But the data are from different platforms viz. Illumina Hiseq 2000,2500,4000, Illumina GAIIxand and LS454, some of which are SE while others are PE. I want to make combined assembly using these samples and then removing batch-effect for differential gene expression analysis.
I am not able to find any tool for this type of analysis. Need help...
