Calling genotypes from public RNA-sequencing data enables identification of genetic variants that affect gene-expression levels

RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) is a powerful technique for the identification of genetic variants that affect gene-expression levels, either through expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) mapping or through allele-specific expression (ASE) analysis. Given increasing numbers of RNA-seq samples in the public domain, ...

Genome-wide map of regulatory interactions in the human genome

rna-seq

Increasing evidence suggests that interactions between regulatory genomic elements play an important role in regulating gene expression. Researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine generated a genome-wide interaction map of regulatory elements in human cells (ENCODE tier 1 cells, K562, ...

Study finds RNA-Seq, like microarrays, only accurate for relative expression, not absolute quantitation

rna-seq

The collborators at the SEQC/MAQC-III Consortium present primary results from the Sequencing Quality Control (SEQC) project, coordinated by the US Food and Drug Administration. Examining Illumina HiSeq, Life Technologies SOLiD and Roche 454 platforms at multiple laboratory sites using reference ...
