What is SalmonTE?

SalmonTE is an ultra-Fast and Scalable Quantification Pipeline of Transpose Element (TE) Abundances from Next Generation Sequencing Data. It comes with Salmon which is a fast and accurate transcriptome quantification method. You can read the details of the pipeline and an example of real data study in our published paper in PSB 2018.

What I need to run SalmonTE? Why I have to use it?

  • You only need to have a set of FASTQ files and phenotype data. Furthermore, SalmonTE automatically decided whether your dataset is paired-ends reads or not.
  • conditions can be numeric or categorical. Based on the data type of the conditions of each sample, SalmonTE will run differential expression analysis or linear regression.
  • Unlikely other TE analysis tools, SalmonTE gives you various visualized output.
