Webinar highlights – Maximizing miRNA-seq success from liquid biopsy samples

Development of markers that facilitate earlier and non-invasive diagnosis is a primary goal of disease research. This is where microRNAs come in. Studies have indicated that the expression levels of these non-coding RNA molecules are altered in disease states, including cancer and neurodegeneration. Evidence of their presence in biofluids means that their potential as important… Read article →

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 →

RNAs that make your heart beat

Love, life, health and vitality. All are connected through one symbol: the beating of a heart. Often we don’t notice the strength of this organ until it starts to beat fast enough in our chests that we can feel it. One of the most beautiful instances of a racing heart happens during social bonding and when we fall in… Read article →
