TSS (Saito) ForwardThis is a set of Transcription Start Sites (TSS) in the Forward sense identified in short read data from the paper:
The transcription start site landscape of C. elegans Saito TL, Hashimoto S, Gu SG, Morton JJ, Stadler M, Blumenthal T, Fire A, Morishita S. Genome Res. 2013 Aug;23(8):1348-61.
The RNASeq data was obtained from the NCBI Sequence Read Archive (SRA) ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sra) under accession number SRA060670. This was aligned to the current version of the assembly and the number of reads aligned to the forward sense of the genome were counted at the genomic position of the 5' end of the aligned read. The count at each genomic position was then normalised by dividing by the number of millions of aligned reads, giving a value in units of Reads Per Million (RPM).
