Dataset Description

Placental biopsies (n = 64 female placentas, n = 67 male placentas) were selected from healthy pregnancies from the POPs cohort. A quality control process was also applied for the RNA-Seq datasets: reads were trimmed with Trim Galore!, which uses cutadapt internally and were mapped to the same version of human genome reference (hg19). TopHat2, a splice-aware mapper built on top of Bowtie2 short-read aligner, was used in the mapping process in which so-called two-pass (or two-scan) alignment protocol was applied to rescue unmapped reads from the initial mapping step. In the second mapping, previously unmapped reads were re-aligned to the exon-intron junctions detected in the first-mapping by TopHat2 and were combined across all 131 placenta samples. The initial and second mapped reads were merged by samtools
