Best Practices for Obtaining RNA Sequencing Data from Formalin-fixed Paraffin-embedded (FFPE) Samples

Best Practices for Obtaining RNA Sequencing Data from Formalin-fixed Paraffin-embedded (FFPE) Samples

Topic: Sequencing

Webinar hosted by Expression Analysis

Formalin-fixed Paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissues present many sample preparation, extraction and method development challenges. Despite these difficulties, interest in genomic analysis of FFPE samples remains high, and large collections of clinically-annotated FFPE material await analysis. The presenter will describe the methods and best practices based on the extensive work Quintiles has performed analyzing both RNA and DNA from FFPE samples.

This webinar is intended to help genomic researchers better understand technical hurdles in the analysis of FFPE-derived RNA to:

  • Learn how EA has overcome challenges inherent in FFPE samples
  • Gain insight into experimental design considerations
  • Learn how to exploit your collection of FFPE material

 By attending the webinar you will learn:

  • How RNA sequencing data derived from fresh frozen and FFPE material can be compared
  • How to design experiments that obtain meaningful data from your FFPE samples
