empirical_density: Estimated distribution of fragment lengths

Description Format References


Empirical fragment length distribution was estimated using 7 randomly selected RNA-seq samples from the GEUVADIS dataset ('t Hoen et al 2013). One sample was selected from each of the 7 laboratories that performed the sequencing. We used Picard's "CollectInsertSizeMetrics" tool (http://broadinstitude.github.io/picard/), version 1.121, to estimate the fragment size distribution based on read alignments. Code we used to estimate this distribution is available at https://github.com/alyssafrazee/polyester/blob/master/make_fraglen_model.R.
