RNA content of a cell









RNA-seq is used to analyze gene expression of certain biological objects systems under different conditions. It is a highly accurate quantification method, which features high repeatability, wide detection range and low cost. It has the following advantages:

  • Digital signals, no noise, no cross-hybridization
  • High reproducibility and sensitivity
  • Detects 25% more genes than microarrays
  • Detects high-abundance and low-abundance genes
  • No species limitations: model organisms and non-model organisms
  • Real-time updates with the important databases
  • Allows cross use of microarray-based software for data analysis
