IsomiR Bank – a research resource for tracking IsomiRs

IsomiR Bank – a research resource for tracking IsomiRs

Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology has revealed that microRNAs (miRNAs) are capable of exhibiting frequent differences from their corresponding mature reference sequences, generating multiple variants: the isoforms of miRNAs (isomiRs). These isomiRs mainly originate via the imprecise and alternative cleavage during ...

Comparative transcriptomics across the prokaryotic tree of life

Comparative transcriptomics across the prokaryotic tree of life

Whole-transcriptome sequencing studies from recent years revealed an unexpected complexity in transcriptomes of bacteria and archaea, including abundant non-coding RNAs, cis-antisense transcription and regulatory untranslated regions (UTRs). Understanding the functional relevance of the plethora of non-coding RNAs in a given ...
