As sequencing throughput approaches dozens of gigabases per day, there is a growing need for efficient software for analysis of transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq) data. Myrna is a cloud-computing pipeline for calculating differential gene expression in large RNA-Seq datasets. We apply Myrna to the analysis of publicly available data sets and assess the goodness of fit of standard statistical models. Myrna is available from http://bowtie-bio.sf.net/myrna webcite.
