recount3 is an online resource consisting of RNA-seq gene, exon, and exon-exon junction counts as well as coverage bigWig files for 8,679 and 10,088 different studies for human and mouse respectively. It is the third generation of the ReCount project and part of recount.bio.
The raw sequencing data were processed with the Monorail
system as described in the recount3
paper which created the coverage bigWig files and the
recount-unified text files. While these raw output files are
available through the Registry of
Open Data on AWS as well as IDIES SciServer, for ease
of statistical analysis, we provide through the recount3
R/Bioconductor package an interface that builds RangedSummarizedExperiment
R objects for gene, exon, and exon-exon junction counts for
each study. Furthermore, snapcount
enables query-based access of the
recount2 data. The coverage bigWig files can be
used for annotation-agnostic expression analyses using for
and other tools.
By taking care of several pre-processing steps and
combining many datasets into one easily-accessible website,
we make finding and analyzing RNA-seq data considerably more
straightforward. For more details about
recount3, check the documentation book.
