Abstract

We present a novel expectation-maximization algorithm for inference of alternative splicing isoform frequencies from high-throughput transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq) data. Our algorithm exploits largely ignored disambiguation information provided by the distribution of insert sizes generated during sequencing library preparation, and takes advantage of base quality scores, strand and read pairing information if available. Empirical experiments on synthetic datasets show that the algorithm significantly outperforms existing methods of isoform and gene expression level estimation from RNA-Seq data.
