Base composition patterns around polyadenylation [poly(A)] sites: comparison between NCBI mRNA sequences and Illumina TruSeq reads. Note that the poly(A) site and the bases located immediately downstream of it were richer in A in Illumina reads than in NCBI mRNA sequences, suggesting a higher proportion of internal priming and likely also artifact poly(A) tails created by RNA/cDNA fragmentation in the RNA-Seq (TruSeq) reads than in the NCBI mRNA sequences.
