How to standardize the small RNA-Seq workflow for reliable biomarker signatures in the age of liquid biopsies

Small RNA-Seq has emerged as a powerful tool in transcriptomics, gene expression profiling and biomarker discovery. Sequencing cell-free nucleic acids, particularly microRNA (miRNA), from liquid biopsies additionally provides exciting possibilities for molecular diagnostics, and might help establish disease-specific biomarker signatures. ...

An RNA-Seq QC Overview

rna-seq

Quality control (QC) is a critical step in RNA sequencing (RNA-seq). Yet, it is often ignored or conducted on a limited basis. Here, Vanderbilt University researchers present a multi-perspective strategy for QC of RNA-seq experiments. The QC of RNA-seq can ...
