Biases in small RNA deep sequencing data

Biases in small RNA deep sequencing data

High-throughput RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) is considered a powerful tool for novel gene discovery and fine-tuned transcriptional profiling. The digital nature of RNA-seq is also believed to simplify meta-analysis and to reduce background noise associated with hybridization-based approaches. The development of ...

Characterization of human plasma-derived exosomal RNAs by RNA-Seq

Exosomes, endosome-derived membrane microvesicles, contain specific RNA transcripts that are thought to be involved in cell-cell communication. These RNA transcripts have great potential as disease biomarkers. To characterize exosomal RNA profiles systemically, a team led by researchers at the Medical ...

How deep is deep enough?

While RNA-sequencing represents a well-established technology, the required sequencing depth for detecting all expressed genes is not known. If we leave the entire biological overhead and meta-information behind we are dealing with a classical sampling process. Such sampling processes are ...
