Are we sequencing too deep?

rna-seq

RNA-seq is increasingly used to study gene expression of various organisms. While it provides a great opportunity to explore genome-scale transcriptional patterns with tremendous depth, it comes with prohibitive costs. Establishing a minimal sequencing depth for required accuracy will guide ...

Roadmap to the epitranscriptome

The “RNA world” is not at all hypothetical but rather the biological world we live in (1). For RNA to function within a modern cellular milieu of proteins and DNA, numerous chemical modifications coevolved that help sculpt its interactions (2). ...

Microarray Not Fade Away

rna-seq

Yes, many are attracted to next-generation sequencing, but loyalty to chip-based phenotyping has its rewards, particularly in screens of large sample sets. from Genetic Engineering News – by Lisa Heiden The microarray, the legacy technology for measuring gene expression, will ...
