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 ...

omiRas – A MicroRNA-Seq Data Analysis Pipeline

rna-seq

To identify circulating miRNA biomarkers for AD, researchers from Meiji Pharmaceutical University, Japan reanalyzed a publicly available small RNA-Seq dataset, composed of blood samples derived from 48 AD patients and 22 normal control (NC) subjects, by a simple web-based miRNA ...
