RPKM and FPKM explained

BY IN Notes 17 COMMENTS , , ,

RNA-Seq provides quantitative approximations of the abundance of target transcripts in the form of counts. However, these counts must be normalized to remove technical biases inherent in the preparation steps for RNA-Seq, in particular the length of the RNA species and the sequencing depth of a sample. For example, expectedly, deeper sequencing results in higher
