Computer-assisted annotation of small RNA transcriptomes

Computer-assisted annotation of small RNA transcriptomes

Small noncoding RNAs (sncRNAs) are widely expressed in the cell of almost all known species. Most sncRNAs appear to have regulatory roles, ranging from facilitating RNA production and modifications (e.g., snoRNAs) to control of mRNA stability and translational efficiency (e.g., ...

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 ...
