Eliminating contaminants in miRNA-seq libaries just got easier

microRNA sequencing is not only useful for finding novel microRNAs and detecting isomiRs; it’s also an attractive method for miRNA expression profiling, particularly when combined with molecular indexing to boost quantification accuracy (see our previous post, Barcodes in NGS: sample vs molecular). But preparing a library to sequence purely microRNAs can be difficult due to contaminating… Read article →
