This is a list of some resources I find useful to conduct data analysis in Life Sciences Research, some of them more specific to the field of Genomics, Transcriptomics, and RNA-seq derived methods.

Programming

R packages

  • Rsamtools
  • GenomicAlignments
  • txtools. This is a package I developed to retrieve count data from alignment files (BAM) to perform analysis that requires single-nucleotide resolution.

Other tools I use a lot

Bioinformatics

  • STAR: RNA-seq reads aligner

Unix

Ebooks

  • R packages by Hadley Wickham A great practical reference to creating R packages using the R package devtools. It has been the main source of help to develop my R packages.
