Threshold-seq: a tool for determining the threshold in short RNA-seq datasets

We present “Threshold-seq”1, a new approach for determining thresholds in deep-sequencing datasets of short RNA transcripts. Threshold-seq addresses the critical question of how many reads need to support a short RNA molecule before it can be considered different from “background” in a given dataset. The proposed scheme is easy to implement and incorporate into existing pipelines.
