tophat2 description

Tophat2 is a fast splice junction mapper for RNA-Seq reads. It aligns RNA-Seq reads to mammalian-sized genomes using the ultra high-throughput short read aligner Bowtie, and then analyzes the mapping results to identify splice junctions between exons.

TopHat is a fast tool for splice junction mapping for RNA-Seq reads. It aligns reads to genome using the high-throughput short read aligner Bowtie, and then analyzes the mapping results to identify splice junctions between exons. It can work without a reference annotation and process mammalian-sized genomes.
