Workflow for identification of new splicing variants from RNA-seq data?

I'd like to perform a search for possibly unidentified splicing variants of a specific protein in A. Thaliana. I do not have my own RNA-seq data. It has been suggested to me to use this workflow: ...

How to find an unidentified splicing variant of a protein?

I have some data indicating there might be a splicing variant of the Arabidopsis Thaliana protein I'm studying that has not been identified. Is there a database of i.e. RNA sequences (transcriptome?) ...

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....

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 ...

RNA velocity: competing explanations for variable ratio of spliced to unspliced transcript

In "RNA velocity of single cells", La Manno et al. look at ratios between spliced and unspliced mRNA as a way of estimating the velocity of a cell through transcriptome space. In checking for a ...

Exon-exon junctions: compare experimental transcripts to reference annotation

My aim is to parse an experimental transcript set (obtained by RNAseq) to check which splice junctions are already reported in a reference annotation and which ones are new. I tried ...
