Uncover the emerging importance of rRNA removal in our QIAinsights chat sessions
Are you spending hours trying to optimize your RNA-seq workflow but still struggling to achieve consistent, high-quality, on-target reads? High levels of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) could be jeopardizing your RNA-seq workflow, compromising your ability to detect low-abundance mRNA transcripts.
If you’re performing RNA-seq on FFPE, gut microbiome or complex environmental bacterial samples, then join our QIAinsights chat sessions. Each session will outline the problems encountered with RNA-seq using specific sample types and then focus on how the evolution of a novel chemistry for RNA removal from mammalian, microbial and mixed population specimens is providing improved library prep workflows, as well as high-quality RNA-seq results, particularly for degraded and limited samples. The last session includes a hands-on demo of complex microbial bioinformatics data analysis using the QIAGEN Microbial Pro Suite.
Join these sessions for a 20–30 min overview of each topic, followed by an interactive Q&A discussion with our R&D experts. Click on the links below to register for each chat session and view local presentation times.
