LC Sciences provides a fast, one-stop whole transcriptome sequencing solution – from your sample through data analysis.

Whole Transcriptome Sequencing (WTS), which includes RNA-Seq with rRNA removal and small RNA-Seq, is used to reveal the complete picture of mRNAs, lncRNAs, circRNAs, as well as microRNA (miRNA), in a biological sample under specific conditions. WTS enables exploration of a complicated post-transcriptional regulation mechanism referred to as a competitive endogenous RNA (ceRNA) network. These ceRNAs such as mRNAs, lncRNAs, circRNAs act as molecular sponges for a miRNA through their miRNA binding sites, thereby de-repressing all target genes of the respective miRNA family.
