The Recount2 project, the largest summarized collection of human RNA sequencing data to date, recently had their paper published in Nature Biotechnology, which you can read at this link. To learn more about Recount2, view our short story published last month. The Recount2 resource itself is available here, and information about accessing recount via SciServer can be found here.
The recount project was primarily the work of Leonardo Collado Torres and Abhinav Nellore. The recount team spans several departments, with most of the work taking place in the labs of Ben Langmead (Computer Science), Jeff Leek (Biostatistics), Kasper Hansen (Institute for Genetic Medicine & Biostatistics) and Andrew Jaffe (The Lieber Institute for Brain Development).
