Long Description The FluxSimulator is the part of the FLUX project that aims at providing an in silico reproduction of the experimental pipelines for RNA-Seq, adopting a minimal set of parameters. Corresponding models were established after analyzing RNA-Seq experiments from different cell types, sample preparation protocols and sequencing platforms. The first step of the FLUX project is-in fact-a transcriptome simulator. Subsequently, common sources of systematic bias in the abundance and distribution of produced reads are mimicked-whether they incur during library construction, or, in the sequencing process. The FluxSimulator provides a flexible base to design benchmark experiments based on the new sequencing technologies, as for instance abundance predictions of the FluxCapacitor.
