RNAseq preferred reference - b37 or hg19?
Hi. I'm wondering if there's a preferred human reference build for aligning RNAseq data?
The only factor that even leads me to ask this question is the following article
on RNAseq best practices, in which hg19 is used. And I gather that b37 is pretty much ubiquitously used at the Broad Institute, so I just wanted to make sure.
(I suspect it makes no difference - sorry for the nit-picking.)
