RNA Sequencing Services

RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) is a transformative technology that revolutionizes the study of gene expression and transcriptomics. Our RNA sequencing services enable researchers to comprehensively analyze RNA molecules within a biological sample, providing insights into the types and quantities of RNA present, including mRNA, non-coding RNA, splice variants, and RNA modifications. RNA-Seq begins with the extraction and purification of RNA from cells or tissues, followed by the conversion of RNA into complementary DNA (cDNA) libraries. These libraries are then sequenced using high-throughput sequencing platforms, generating millions of short reads that represent RNA sequences. RNA-Seq is pivotal in diverse fields such as biomedical research and agriculture, offering unparalleled resolution and sensitivity for understanding gene function, disease mechanisms, and the impact of therapies at the molecular level.

Here are some key benefits of using RNA sequencing in cell line characterization:

1. Comprehensive Transcriptome Analysis

  • Global Gene Expression: RNA-seq allows for the quantification of all RNA transcripts, providing a complete picture of gene expression in a cell line.
  • Discovery of New Transcripts: Identifies novel transcripts, including previously unknown genes, splice variants, and non-coding RNAs.

2. High Sensitivity and Precision

  • Detection of Low-Abundance Transcripts: Capable of detecting low-abundance mRNAs, giving insights into genes expressed at low levels.
  • Quantitative Accuracy: Provides precise quantification of RNA levels, which is critical for differential gene expression analysis.

3.  Detailed Molecular Insights

  • Alternative Splicing: Identifies and quantifies alternative splicing events, providing insights into the complexity of gene regulation and protein diversity.
  • Post-Transcriptional Modifications: Detects RNA editing and other post-transcriptional modifications that can impact gene function.

4. Gene Regulation Studies

  • Regulatory Networks: Helps in elucidating gene regulatory networks by identifying co-expressed genes and potential regulatory elements.
  • Non-Coding RNAs: Characterizes non-coding RNAs, such as miRNAs, lncRNAs, and circRNAs, which play crucial roles in gene regulation.

5. Pathway and Functional Analysis

  • Biological Pathways: Provides insights into the biological pathways active in a cell line, aiding in the understanding of cellular processes and disease mechanisms.
  • Functional Annotation: Helps in the functional annotation of genes and understanding their roles in various cellular contexts.

6. Comparative Analysis

  • Differential Expression: Allows for the comparison of gene expression profiles between different cell lines, conditions, or treatments, highlighting key differences and similarities.
  • Evolutionary Studies: Facilitates evolutionary studies by comparing transcriptomes across species or different evolutionary stages.

7. Technological Advancements

  • Single-Cell RNA-Seq: Allows for single-cell RNA sequencing, providing insights into cellular heterogeneity and rare cell populations within a cell line.
  • Long-Read Sequencing: Advances in long-read sequencing technologies provide more accurate information on transcript structure and isoform diversity.
