Small RNA Sequencing

Do not neglect the small ones

Discover new small RNAs and analyse the expression of known small RNAs.

Small RNAs constitute a family of RNA species that plays a central role in regulating gene expression in many organisms. With the enormous depth reached by next generation sequencing technologies, you can get a comprehensive view of the small RNAs in your samples.

Sequencing small RNA is done by preparing a short insert cDNA library for each sample and subsequently sequencing these libraries using Illumina HiSeq 2500 or MiSeq technology. To sequence several small RNA samples in one channel, we offer library preparation with individual indexes.

Typical projects are:

  • Differential expression analysis of small RNAs
  • Identification of novel small RNAs
  • Identification of target molecules of novel miRNAs
