What initially attracted you to RNA-Seq? I started using RNA-Seq during my doctoral studies in the early phase of a project after having started out with microarrays. The organism I was studying at the time was the pathogenic basidiomycete, Cryptococcus neoformans. RNA-Seq was a perfect fit for this project given the early draft stages of the cryptococcal genome annotation. What attracted me at the time and what still attracts me is that, unlike microarrays, with RNA-Seq you can actually see what you are measuring…
