TT-seq maps the human transient transcriptome

Transcription of eukaryotic genomes produces protein-coding mRNAs and diverse noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs), including enhancer RNAs (eRNAs). Most ncRNAs are rapidly degraded, difficult to detect, and thus far have not been mappable in their full range. Mapping of transient RNAs is ...

How good are those RNA-seq data?

The enormous number of public gene expression data sets can turn into research gold when mined for any number of biological questions. But digging into the data of other researchers is often fraught by a lack of metadata. In particular, ...
