October 2019: MaizeGDB qTeller has a new look! Now we can compare expression and abundance under the menu 'Compare RNA & Protein'.

September 2018: A navigation bar at the top with tool drop-down menus makes navigation easier.

27-August-2018: The issue with qTeller due to a server problem has been resolved.

Welcome to an updated version of qteller! Compare RNA & Protein


All RNA-seq reads were mapped using the STAR 2.5.3 aligner, default settings, and FPKM abundances were counted using Cufflinks 2.2.1, default settings. Fastq reads were not trimmed except for the Walley RNA-seq data, which was mapped by Jesse Walsh of MaizeGDB. Reads with multiple bioreps were merged and averaged after the FPKM abundance Cufflinks step. Error bars in bar charts denote the "Low" and "High" FPKMs for each sample.
