Summary:
In this module, students will learn to identify splice donor and acceptor sites that are best supported by RNA-Seq data, and use the canonical splice donor and splice acceptor sequences to identify intron-exon boundaries.

Description

All RNAs in the cell are collectively known as the "transcriptome" as almost all RNA is produced by transcription from a DNA template. (In some cases, RNA is made from an RNA template.) The transcriptome includes messenger RNAs, ribosomal RNAs, transfer RNAs, and other RNAs that have specialized functions in the cell. Here, we will investigate how mRNA specifically is modified. Students will learn to identify splice donor and acceptor sites that are best supported by RNA-Seq and TopHat splice junction predictions and use the canonical splice donor and splice acceptor sequences to identify intron-exon boundaries.
