This is the development version of cleanUpdTSeq; for the stable release version, see cleanUpdTSeq.

cleanUpdTSeq cleans up artifacts from polyadenylation sites from oligo(dT)-mediated 3' end RNA sequending data

Bioconductor version: Development (3.14)

This package implements a Naive Bayes classifier for accurately differentiating true polyadenylation sites (pA sites) from oligo(dT)-mediated 3' end sequencing such as PAS-Seq, PolyA-Seq and RNA-Seq by filtering out false polyadenylation sites, mainly due to oligo(dT)-mediated internal priming during reverse transcription. The classifer is highly accurate and outperforms other heuristic methods.
