Transcriptomics (or expression profiling) is the study of the transcriptome – the complete set of RNA transcripts that are produced by specific cells or tissues under specific circumstances. Depending on your interest several different RNA transcripts, messenger RNAs (mRNA), micro RNAs (miRNA), long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA), etc can be profiled. By using high-throughput methods, such as massively parallel sequencing, one can compare samples’ transcriptomes and identify transcripts (genes) that are differentially expressed between groups of samples.
NXTGNT offers several services to study expression:
- directional RNA sequencing, sequencing of total RNA, messenger (mRNA) RNA or small (non-coding) RNA (miRNA, ncRNA, …)
- Lexogen QuantSeq 3′ mRNA-Seq Library Prep
- single cell RNA sequencing when limited start material is available.
- ribosome profiling to sequence and identify actively translated transcripts
- transcriptome sequencing of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded and other low quality samples
