Webinar – Analyzing the Cancer Transcriptome – Illuminating the Dysfunctional Cancer Genome

gen webinarPresented by GEN

  • Broadcast Date: Wednesday, April 18, 2012
  • Time: 1 pm ET, 10 am PT

The RNA seq method provides a comprehensive amount of information on the cancer transcriptome: highly sensitive and accurate gene-expression levels, alternative splice forms, novel fusion transcripts, and mutational changes that have a direct impact on protein function.

In this webinar, presenters will review transformative discoveries from RNA-seq, and describe a highly effective approach for isolation and characterization of circulating tumor cells using RNA-seq at single cell resolution.

Parameters that affect quantification of expressed nucleotide sequence polymorphisms (SNVs) will also be discussed, as will the development and implementation of tools for the identification of fusion transcripts. Finally, presenters will also talk about development of a potential RNA-seq based test for cancer.
