Viewing RNA-seq data on the entire human genome

rna-seq

RNA-Seq Viewer is a web application that enables users to visualize genome-wide expression data from NCBI’s Sequence Read Archive (SRA) and Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) databases. The application prototype was created by a small team during a three-day hackathon facilitated ...

An RNA-Seq Primer

rna-seq

Pharmacogenomics has revealed compelling genetic signals associated with variability in drug response. Gene expression studies represent an additional approach to identify candidate genes accounting for drug response variability. Researchers from the University of Florida discuss insights that might be gained through analysis of ...

RNA Sequencing – An Introduction

rna-seq

News Medical Life Sciences by By Catherine Shaffer, M.Sc. – If DNA is the fundamental code of the genome, RNA is the message. Genes are made active through the process of transcribing the code into RNA, and then translating RNA into DNA. This is known as ...

BC Cancer Agency researchers increase quality, throughput and speed of sample preparation for strand-specific messenger RNA sequencing

rna-seq

RNA-Sequencing (RNA-seq) is now commonly used to reveal quantitative spatiotemporal snapshots of the transcriptome, the structures of transcripts (splice variants and fusions) and landscapes of expressed mutations. However, standard approaches for library construction typically require relatively high amounts of input ...
