How to identify which isoforms of a gene are actually expressed in my data?

I am new to bioinformatics and have been assigned the task of discovering which isoforms of a certain protein-coding gene are present in the RNA-seq data that I have. There are several isoforms of ...

BAM file filteing to remain best isoform

I ran HiSat2, MarkDuplicate, removed reads with the lower quality score than 40 and finally only kept properly paired reads. After the BAM filtering steps, I used the Scallop results with TransDecoder....

Difference between isoforms and paralogs in transcriptoms?

I've assembled RNAseq data into a transcriptoms using Trinity. There's a option to keep only the longest isoforms for each transcripts and it lead me to wonder how it deals with duplicated genes (--&...

Do I need to study alternative splicing and isoformswitch separately?

I have done a study on isoform switch between different tissue type. Now, many people asking me to study alternative splicing also. But, dont they will give me same results? If there is a significant ...
