GeneTEFlow: A Nextflow-based pipeline for analysing gene and transposable elements expression from RNA-Seq data

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology

Transposable elements (TEs) are mobile genetic elements in eukaryotic genomes. Recent research highlights the important role of TEs in the embryogenesis, neurodevelopment, and immune functions. However, there is a lack of a one-stop and easy to use computational pipeline for expression analysis of both genes and locus-specific TEs from RNA-Seq data. Here, we present GeneTEFlow, a fully automated, reproducible and platform-independent workflow, for the comprehensive analysis of gene and locus-specific TEs expression from RNA-Seq data employing Nextflow and Docker technologies. This application will help researchers more easily perform integrated analysis of both gene and TEs expression, leading to a better understanding of roles of gene and TEs regulation in human diseases. GeneTEFlow is freely available at https://github.com/zhongw2/GeneTEFlow .
