A defining decade in DNA (and RNA) sequencing

rna-seq

from Nature Methods The past decade has seen a transformation, fueled by the availability of NGS platforms, in applications based on generating DNA and RNA sequence. There are more than 50 multiletter-acronym or ‘MLA-seq’ applications for interrogating a wide variety ...

RNA sequencing – current and prospective uses in metabolic research

rna-seq

Previous global RNA analysis was restricted to known transcripts in species with a defined transcriptome. Next generation sequencing has transformed transcriptomics by making it possible to analyse expressed genes with an exon level resolution from any tissue in any species ...

Multiple Studies Cite Progress toward Quality Transcriptomes

rna-seq

from Genetic Engineering News RNA sequencing (RNA-seq), a means of depicting the transcriptome, is being used with increasing frequency to characterize a growing array of conditions—everything from prenatal birth defects to disorders of the elderly. Yet the technique, which is ...
