How to Install and Uninstall bitseq Ubuntu 22.04

Updated: September 2, 2022

BitSeq is an application for inferring expression levels of individual transcripts from sequencing (RNA-Seq) data and estimating differential expression (DE) between conditions. An advantage of this approach is the ability to account for both technical uncertainty and intrinsic biological variance in order to avoid false DE calls. The technical contribution to the uncertainty comes both from finite read-depth and the possibly ambiguous mapping of reads to multiple transcripts. In this guide, I will show you ways to install bitseq Ubuntu 22.04.

Prerequisites to install

  • Operating system: Ubuntu 22.04 or older Ubuntu versions
  • Privileges: Ascertain that you are able to execute sudo commands.
