Combining different single-cell RNA-seq platforms

rna-seq

Single-cell RNA-seq is a powerful tool for revealing heterogeneity in cancer cells. However, each of the current single-cell RNA-seq platforms has inherent advantages and disadvantages. Here, researchers from the University of Tokyo show that combining the different single-cell RNA-seq platforms can be ...

Taming the transcriptome with RNA-Seq

rna-seq

There’s a new RNA-seq in town. Although the old RNA-seq administered a certain rough justice, profiling RNA species well enough to support a relatively crude conception of the transcriptome, the new RNA-seq is more refined...

RNA-Seq and Socioeconomics

rna-seq

The correlation between low socioeconomic status (SES) and poor health outcome or higher risk of disease has been consistently reported by many epidemiological studies across various race/ancestry groups. However, the biological mechanisms...

Arkas – Rapid reproducible RNA-Seq analysis

rna-seq

The recently introduced Kallisto pseudoaligner has radically simplified the quantification of transcripts in RNA-sequencing experiments.  Researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of USC offer cloud-scale RNAseq pipelines Arkas-Quantification, which deploys Kallisto for parallel cloud computations, and Arkas-Analysis, which annotates ...
