Summary

The data set contains paired-end, 100 nucleotide long RNA sequencing reads for each sample. Raw sequencing reads ranged from 18-30million reads per sample. Quality trimmed reads were mapped to the Zebra Finch reference genome with an average of 79.0-80.8% mapping rate, corresponding to 18,618 Ensembl gene IDs. Of these, 14,114 genes averaged at least 5 mapped reads across all samples and were utilized for differential expression (DE) analyses. DE analyzed two ways: as pairwise comparisons between treatments to identify specific genes with DEseq2 and as a time course grouping genes into expression paths with EBSeqHMM.

Purpose

The data set contains results for RNAseq analysis of RNA extracted from zebra finches experimentally infected 2 and 4 days earlier with West Nile virus or control virus diluent. The purpose of the study was to determine if WNV infection elicited differential expression of innate or acquired immune response genes as compared to uninfected birds.
