Targeted RNAseq for gene expression

Download the slides

Not every experiment requires whole transcriptome sequencing, but until recently, there hasn’t been a convenient way to profile transcriptomes in biological research areas such as cancer or immunity. In this webinar, we discuss the strategy and technology of targeted RNA sequencing, including the use of novel targeted RNA-seq panels covering the transcriptomes of 8 different pathways for human and mouse, as well as 170+ smaller panels. Using Single Primer Extension (SPE) and Unique Molecular Index (UMI) technology, QIAseq panels overcome traditional RNA-seq limitations and ensure increased precision and accuracy. Join us and learn how you can easily upgrade your RNA-seq data and move beyond the limits of qPCR, microarray and traditional RNA-seq.
