New RNA sequencing methods enable discovery and profiling of RNAs in any organism without prior genome annotation. Rapid advancement of new technologies has led to the development of several methods of RNA sequencing which differ in many respects such as: the RNA selection method, required sequencing depth, and type of data generated. The purpose of this video is to explain the differences between the various RNA sequencing services that LC Sciences offers, and help you determine which service is right for your project based on the goals of your experiment(s).
