RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) is revolutionizing the study of the transcriptome. A highly sensitive and accurate tool for measuring expression across the transcriptome, it is providing visibility to previously undetected changes occurring in disease states, in response to therapeutics, under different environmental conditions and across a broad range of other study designs.
RNA-Seq allows researchers to detect both known and novel features in a single assay, enabling the detection of transcript isoforms, gene fusions, single nucleotide variants, allele-specific gene expression and other features without the limitation of prior knowledge.
RNA-Seq is increasingly the method of choice for researchers studying the transcriptome. It offers numerous advantages over gene expression arrays.
