Improved RNA extraction from neurons

rna-seq

Efficient isolation of specific, intact, living neurons from the adult brain is problematic due to the complex nature of the extracellular matrix consolidating the neuronal network. Here, researchers from the RIKEN Institute present significant improvements to the protocol for isolation ...

A more refined equine transcriptome

rna-seq

Transcriptome interpretation relies on a good-quality reference transcriptome for accurate quantification of gene expression as well as functional analysis of genetic variants. The current annotation of the horse genome lacks the specificity and sensitivity necessary to assess gene expression especially ...
