Background / Purpose:
We compared two experimental approaches – standard microarray technology and next-generation RNA-seq for the analysis of changes in lncRNA expression profiles in NSCLC cancer tissue samples.
Main conclusion:
Generally speaking, RNA-seq technique outperforms arrays when studying lncRNAs. Cufflinks status should be taken into account together with counts or FPKM values in order to avoid misinterpreting the results.
Next steps:
Correlation between co-localized lncRNAs and mRNAs should be further investigated.
