An evaluation of high-throughput isomiR identification tools

MicroRNAs carry out post-transcriptional gene regulation in animals by binding to the 3′ untranslated regions of mRNAs, causing their degradation or translational repression. MicroRNAs influence many biological functions, and dysregulation can therefore disrupt development or even cause death. High-throughput sequencing ...

Identifying cell populations with scRNA-Seq

rna-seq

Single-cell RNASeq (scRNASeq) has emerged as a powerful method for quantifying the transcriptome of individual cells. However, the data from scRNASeq experiments is often both noisy and high dimensional, making the computational analysis non-trivial. Here researchers from the Karolinska Institutet ...

The diagnostic power of RNA-seq

rna-seq

Whole-exome sequencing (WES) and whole-genome sequencing (WGS) can only identify rare Mendelian genetic diseases in up to 50% of cases; our ability to interpret the functional and clinical importance of the genetic variants they identify is limited. Here, Cummings et ...
