An award for difficult RNA samples.
Gene expression profiling using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is empowering an ever-increasing range of researchers to answer highly relevant biological and medical questions. At Lexogen, we are dedicated to developing innovative technologies for NGS and making these accessible for all scientists.
With the Lexogen Research Award we wish to provide a chance for researchers to utilize more NGS. We ask you to submit a description of the project where you would use NGS and Lexogen’s RNA-Seq sample prep. The winners shall be given a product of Lexogen together with a free sequencing run and data analysis.
The topic of this Research Award is “High quality from low quality: Accurate gene expression profiling of low quality or FFPE samples“.
RNA sequencing is rapidly becoming the platform of choice for gene expression profiling projects. However, not all samples are created equal, and not all researchers have the luxury of working with high quality RNA for NGS library preparation. Field-collected samples, historical samples, or heavily degraded samples from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues all present challenges for library preparation.
Lexogen is delighted to announce its new Research Award “High quality from low quality: Accurate gene expression profiling of low quality or FFPE samples“. Submit a description of your research project, and win a QuantSeq 96 reaction 3’ mRNA-Seq library prep kit and a free sequencing run. Recommend this Research Award to a friend / colleague and win as well!
