Variability Across RNA-seq Experiments Suggests Need for Careful Study Design

Researchers found that even at high coverage, the estimate of the relative abundance of a particular transcript can “substantially disagree” between sequencing experiments using the same platforms and protocols.

Study Finds Array and Sequencing Combo Yields Novel Info on Gene Expression

A recent study suggests that using arrays and sequencing together could help generate more reliable data sets than when either method is used alone, and should help improve the confidence of functional analysis.
