Find out everything you need to know about RNA sequencing techniques.
In this webinar, we will guide you through the complexities of RNA sequencing based on our many years of experience in QIAGEN’s Genomic Service lab. We’ll decode the terminology, discuss strandedness, single/paired-end reads and read length/depth, so you can make the best choices for your RNA sequencing project.

Topics covered include:

  • Library preparation strategies for different RNAs – mRNA, lncRNA and miRNA
  • How to select the optimal sequencing parameters according to your project goals
  • Quality control of RNA samples, library prep and sequencing data
  • RNA data analysis, normalization and quantification and biological interpretation
  • The importance of validating NGS results

Join us for this insightful webinar and learn how to obtain and analyze high-quality and -quantity unique RNA reads to take your research to the next level.

About the speaker
Barbara R. Gould, Ph.D., Manager, Genomics Field Application Specialist Team
Dr. Barbara Gould received her Ph.D. in Experimental Medicine focusing on molecular endocrinologyfrom McGill University, Montreal, Canada, in 2004. After a post-doctoral fellowship, she started her career as a Field Application Specialist, where she provided experimental advice and technical support for the use of molecular biology reagents.Dr. Gould joined Exiqon in 2008 as a Field Application Scientist, educating and advising academic and industry-based researchers on all aspects of RNA research projects, including Exiqon’s own biomarker research. She transferred into a Senior Field Application Scientist role when QIAGEN acquired Exiqon in 2016 and is currently the manager of the North America Genomics Field Application Scientist team.
