RNA Sequencing

The combination of NGS and polyA selection or ribo-depletion of total RNA has revolutionized gene expression analysis. RNA-seq at the CGT including polyA-selected mRNA-seq, whole transcriptome analysis, tag profiling and small RNA discovery allows for the exploration of functional genomics in model organisms and agricultural samples.

  • Identity tissue-specific gene expression patterns at high resolution
  • Explore differential expression across disease conditions
  • Discover novel splice variants, SNVs and insertion/deletions
  • Interrogate long non-coding RNAs as well as small RNAs

Services Deliverables:

  • Quantity and quality confirmation of total RNA
