Frequently Asked Question

What are the differences between rMAPS2 (v2.0.0 and later) and earlier versions?
   rMAPS2 (v2.0.0 and later) can analyze RBP motif or CLIP peaks around all five major types of alternative splicing events (SE, MXE, A5SS, A3SS, and RI). The earlier versions can perform analyses only for one type of alternative splicing event (SE). rMAPS2 also intensively employed multi-threading to reduce the running time. In addition, by employing multi-threading, rMAPS2 has vastly improved the user experience with significant reductions in running time, going from ~8 minutes for a single SE event type to ~3.5 minutes for all 5 alternative splicing types together
Are the earlier versions still available?
   The earlier versions are completely included in rMAPS2. Users can uploaded SE event results only to simulate the earlier versions
With CRSPR/CAS9 technology getting popular, frog genomes get more attention. is rMAPS planning to support frog genomes?
   Yes, rMAPS2 already included two frog genomes. They are xenLae2 (Xenopus laevis: African Clawed Frog), and xenTro9 (Xenopus tropicalis).
Will more genome assemblies be added to rMAPS web server?
   Yes, rMAPS team will continuously add/update more genome assemblies to the rMAPS pipeline.
