Introduction

Introduction

Advances in RNA sequencing technology have made the reliable detection and quantification of gene expression at the isoform level possible. TAPPAS has been created specifically to provide analysis, visualization, filtering, and ad hoc query tools for working with RNA-seq data at the gene and isoform levels.Note: Most of this section will come from the research paper, once it becomes available

Application Requirements

tappAS is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) application written in Java. It uses SQLite for its database management and R, along with some statistical packages, for data analysis. Like most applications dealing with large datasets, the more computational power and memory available, the better the application will run. Be aware that insufficient resources, – CPU, memory, and disk space – will make the application sluggish or unusable. Listed below are the requirements for running TAPPAS:

Computer Hardware
  • Minimum of 4 cores (multi-core CPU or single core CPUs)
  • Minimum of 8 GBs of memory
  • Minimum of 20 GBs of available, unused, disk space
Operating System
  • Mac OS X recent version, or
  • Windows OS recent version, or
  • Linux Ubuntu recent version, or
  • Any other Linux/Unix desktop environments able to run Java GUI applications should work but HAVE NOT BEEN TESTED
Client Java
  • Java (Oracle JRE or JDK) version 8 update 40 or later
  • JRE/JDK version 9 has been officially released but TAPPAS HAS NOT BEEN TESTED on it yet
  • Application will not work with OpenJDK
Software
  • Rscript version 3.2.2 or later
R packages
