High-Resolution Transcriptome Analysis with Long-Read RNA Sequencing

rna-seq

RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) enables characterization and quantification of individual transcriptomes as well as detection of patterns of allelic expression and alternative splicing. Current RNA-seq protocols depend on high-throughput short-read sequencing of cDNA. However, as ongoing advances are rapidly yielding increasing ...

Seqnature – RNA-Seq Alignment to Individualized Genomes Improves Transcript Abundance Estimates in Multiparent Population

rna-seq

Massively parallel RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has yielded a wealth of new insights into transcriptional regulation. A first step in the analysis of RNA-seq data is the alignment of short sequence reads to a common reference genome or transcriptome. Genetic variants ...

RNA sequencing – current and prospective uses in metabolic research

rna-seq

Previous global RNA analysis was restricted to known transcripts in species with a defined transcriptome. Next generation sequencing has transformed transcriptomics by making it possible to analyse expressed genes with an exon level resolution from any tissue in any species ...

Comparison of Computational Methods for Identification of Allele-Specific Expression based on Next Generation Sequencing Data

rna-seq

Allele-specific expression (ASE) studies have wide-ranging implications for genome biology and medicine. Whole transcriptome RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) has emerged as a genome-wide tool for identifying ASE, but suffers from mapping bias favoring reference alleles. Two categories of methods are adopted ...

Calling genotypes from public RNA-sequencing data enables identification of genetic variants that affect gene-expression levels

rna-seq

Given increasing numbers of RNA-seq samples in the public domain, researchers at the University of Groningen studied to what extent expression quantitative trait loci (eQTLs) and allele-specific expression (ASE) can be identified in public RNA-seq data while also deriving the ...
