Default RNA-seq Quality Control help

I am going to see the quality of the RNA-seq data, is any method or program available to help me to do this? Thanks!

I heard some people analyze the distribution of ATCG in the different position of the reads... or compare the lane's complexity...

ShortRead could assess the data quality; and other stuffs could be used? How to evaluate the ribosomal RNA contaminations.... Thanks!

I often use fastQC for this task.

But I am not sure if fastQC can help with the ribosomal RNA contaminations.... I think there are some discussions about that in this forum.

I will start from FastQC; any more packages for QC control? Thanks a lot!

Default interpreting the QC

Thanks again for your help!
My samples were done in Illumina and I have used FastQC to check the quality of my samples, I have some questions as for 1) per sequence quality scores; 2)Sequence Duplication Levels;

Q1: there are up-down peaks starting from position 1 to position 15, and my sequence length is 75nt; is this OK? I heard people said before 16 there are always some nosies....

Q2: Sequence duplication levels and Kmer Content? first one is big than 69 and second one has some problems with the beginning sequences; is this also related to Q1


I really appreciate all the helps from this forum, thanks a lot!

Regarding rRNA contamination-
I am not sure whether there is a database for ribosomal RNA like other RNA species(miRNA and ncRNA). If available, data can be blast against this database to see the contamination.

Default EVER-seq (Evaluate Experiment of RNA-seq)

We develop a package to QC RNA-seq experiment from different aspects such as: gene body coverage, reads distribution over the genome, duplication rate, reproducibility and saturation etc.

http://code.google.com/p/ever-seq/

We change the name of EVER-seq into RSeQC. Because Google Code doesn't allow rename an exist project, we create a new project with the url:
http://code.google.com/p/rseqc/

From now on, we will update and add new modules to RSeQC

The picard tool set also has a nice RNAseq metrics tool

You could also use the perl script preprocessest.pl with the -dr option set for the removal of ribosomal cDNA. You'd need to set up a blast db with your organism's rDNA first though.
