Allele-specific gene expression by RNA-seq

Variation in gene expression is thought to make a significant contribution to phenotypic diversity among individuals within populations. Although high-throughput cDNA sequencing offers a unique opportunity to delineate the genome-wide architecture of regulatory variation, new statistical methods need to be ...

Ignored biases confound RNA-Seq results

High-throughput RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) continues to provide unparalleled insight into transcriptome complexity. Now the gold standard for assessing global transcript levels, RNA-seq is poised to revolutionize our understanding of transcription and post-transcriptional regulation of RNA. To fully capitalize on the ...
