Strong Points: Highlights data analysis tools, large collection of articles
Weak Points: Many ads, busy site design


Researchers who use RNA-Seq will find the RNA-Seq quite useful, as this website includes much more information than one typically associates with a “blog,” per se. The website includes a vast repository of articles that highlight recent scientific results and news related to RNA-Seq technology, though a major strength of the website is the section specifically devoted to data analysis. From this page site visitors can learn (via short, descriptive posts) about a number of tools that can assist with various aspects of analyzing RNA-Seq datasets, such as data visualization, SNP detection, statistical analysis, and transcriptome assembly. Additional content on the site is organized into pages corresponding to news, events, jobs, and technology. For regular updates, site visitors can subscribe to the blog, and they can also follow the blog on social media.
