Optimization of Extraction of Circulating RNAs from Plasma – Enabling Small RNA Sequencing

rna-seq

There are several protocols and kits for the extraction of circulating RNAs from plasma with a following quantification of specific genes via RT-qPCR. Due to the marginal amount of cell-free RNA in plasma samples, the total RNA yield is insufficient ...

A method for extracting high-quality RNA from diverse plants for next-generation sequencing and gene expression analyses

To study expression in plants, high-quality RNA must be extracted in quantities sufficient for subsequent cDNA library construction. Field-based collections are often limited in quantity and quality of tissue and are typically preserved in RNAlater. Obtaining sufficient and high-quality yield ...

Influence of RNA extraction methods and library selection schemes on RNA-seq data

rna-seq

Gene expression analysis by RNA sequencing is now widely used in a number of applications surveying the whole transcriptomes of cells and tissues. The recent introduction of ribosomal RNA depletion protocols, such as RiboZero, has extended the view of the ...

Success in RNA-Seq – Sample Prep and Workflow considerations

rna-seq

by Natalie McDonald, PhD RNA in the cell is comprised of a variety of populations, including traditional poly-adenylated messenger RNA (polyA RNA), non-adenlyated RNA, which may be coding or regulatory, ribosomal RNA (rRNA) and small and micro RNA.  The first ...
