CSHL Researcher's STAR Performs Speedy Splice Junction Detection for RNA-Seq Data

STAR is part of an alignment strategy for the de novo detection of splice junctions without needing prior knowledge about their loci or their properties. Such an "unbiased" method can help find novel splice junctions as well as other RNA species such as chimeric RNAs.
