We used an in vitro system based on the inducible expression of the RNA binding protein 6 (RBP6) to monitor transcriptome changes during the differentiation of Trypanosoma brucei from non-infectious procyclics to infectious metacyclics and from metacyclics to bloodstream forms. This data file describes the bioinformatics analysis of 20 distinct RNA-Seq samples, with four biological replicates each, highlighting differential transcript abundance. Additional functional annotation analysis using Gene Ontology is also presented. Complete raw data files were deposited at the NCBI Sequence Read Archive – SRA at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Traces/sra/sra.cgi with accession numbers: SRP153824, SRP153562, and SRP152737.
