RNA Sequencing (RNA-Seq) Reveals Extremely Low Levels of Reticulocyte-Derived Globin Gene Transcripts in Peripheral Blood From Horses (Equus caballus) and Cattle (Bos taurus)

RNA-seq has emerged as an important technology for measuring gene expression in peripheral blood samples collected from humans and other vertebrate species. In particular, transcriptomics analyses of whole blood can be used to study immunobiology and develop novel biomarkers of infectious disease. However, ...

RNA-seq for blood-based pan-cancer diagnostics


from Nature Reviews Genetics by Liesbet Lieben A systemic, minimally invasive diagnostic test to determine whether an individual has cancer could greatly improve cancer prognosis by facilitating early diagnosis and improving monitoring. However, the use of blood-based ‘liquid biopsies’ is ...
