Sneak Peak: Sequencing the Transcriptome: RNA Applications for Next Generation Sequencing

Join us this coming Wednesday, September 16, 2009 10:00 am Pacific Daylight Time (San Francisco, GMT-07:00), for a webinar on whole transcriptome analysis. In the presentation you will learn about how GeneSifter Analysis Edition can be used to identify novel RNAs and novel splice events within known RNAs.


Next Generation Sequencing applications such as RNA-Seq, Tag Profiling, Whole Transcriptome Sequencing and Small RNA Analysis allow whole genome analysis of coding as well as non-coding RNA at an unprecedented level. Current technologies allow for the generation of 200 million data points in a single instrument run. In addition to allowing for the complete characterization of all known RNAs in a sample, these applications are also ideal for the identification of novel RNAs and novel splicing events for known RNAs.

This presentation will provide an overview of the RNA applications using data from the NCBI's GEO database and Short Read Archive with an emphasis on converting raw data into biologically meaningful datasets. Data analysis examples will focus on methods for identifying differentially expressed genes, novel genes, differential splicing and 5’ and 3’ variation in miRNAs.
