Rna Sequencing Peer-review Journals

RNA-Seq (named as an abbreviation of "RNA sequencing") is a particular technology-based sequencing technique which uses next-generation sequencing (NGS) to reveal the presence and quantity of RNA in a biological sample at a given moment, analysing the continuously changing cellular transcriptase. A read refers to the sequence of a cluster that is obtained after the end of the sequencing process which is ultimately the sequence of a section of a unique fragment. If an RNA is expressed in high copies then there will be more reads coming from it; reads can be redundant as well. The first step in the technique involves converting the population of RNA to be sequenced into cDNA fragments (a cDNA library). This allows the RNA to be put into an NGS workflow. Adapters are then added to each end of the fragments. The sequencing often follows either single-read or paired-end sequencing methods. While sequencing DNA gives a genetic profile of an organism, sequencing RNA reflects only the sequences that are actively expressed in the cells. To sequence RNA, the usual method is first to reverse transcribe the RNA extracted from the sample to generate cDNA fragments.
