Transcript assembly and quantification for RNA-seq

StringTie is a fast and highly efficient assembler of RNA-seq alignments into potential transcripts. The input can be the alignments of raw reads as usual; it also accepts longer assembled sequences. The output can be processed by downstream software including Ballgown, Cuffdiff, etc.
