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.
