RNA sequencing has revolutionized the exploration of gene expression. Advances in the sequencing workflow, from sample preparation through data analysis, enable rapid profiling and deep investigation of the transcriptome. With RNA sequencing, you can characterize all transcriptional activity, coding and non-coding, in any organism without prior assumptions.
Illumina's unique combination of long and short reads, single and paired-end sequencing, strand specificity, and capacity for tens of millions to billions of reads per run allows you to...
With the greatest daily output available for any sequencing system, transcript profiles can be generated in a single day. RNA sequencing reads can be aligned across splice junctions to identify isoforms, novel transcripts and gene fusions. Identify and quantify both rare and common transcripts, with over six orders of magnitude of dynamic range.
