    circFL-seq, A Full-length circRNA Sequencing Method
    Authors:  Zelin Liu and Ence Yang, date: 04/20/2022, view: 973, Q&A: 1

    Due to overlapping sequences with linear cognates, identifying internal sequences of circular RNA (circRNA) remains a challenge. Recently, we have developed a full-length circRNA sequencing method (circFL-seq) and computational pipeline, to profile ordinary and fusion circRNA at the isoform level. Compared to short-read RNA-seq, rolling circular

    Subcellular RNA-seq for the Analysis of the Dendritic and Somatic Transcriptomes of Single Neurons
    Authors:  Julio D. Perez and Erin M. Schuman, date: 01/05/2022, view: 1528, Q&A: 0

    In neurons, local translation in dendritic and axonal compartments allows for the fast and on-demand modification of the local proteome. As the last few years have witnessed dramatic advancements in our appreciation of the brain’s neuronal diversity, it is increasingly relevant to understand how local translation is regulated according to

    High-throughput RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has extraordinarily advanced our understanding of gene expression and disease etiology, and is a powerful tool for the identification of biomarkers in a wide range of organisms. However, most RNA-seq methods rely on retroviral reverse transcriptases (RTs), enzymes that have inherently low fidelity and

    Trypanosomatid, fluorescence-based in vitro U-insertion/U-deletion RNA-editing (FIDE)
    Authors:  Wolf-Matthias Leeder, Elisabeth Kruse and H. Ulrich Göringer, date: 03/05/2021, view: 2488, Q&A: 0

    Gene expression within the mitochondria of African trypanosomes and other protozoan organisms relies on a nucleotide-specific RNA-editing reaction. In the process exclusively uridine (U)-nucleotides are site-specifically inserted into and deleted from sequence-deficient primary transcripts to convert them into translatable mRNAs. The reaction is

    Primer ID Next-Generation Sequencing for the Analysis of a Broad Spectrum Antiviral Induced Transition Mutations and Errors Rates in a Coronavirus Genome

    Next generations sequencing (NGS) has become an important tool in biomedical research. The Primer ID approach combined with the MiSeq platform overcomes the limitation of PCR errors and reveals the true sampling depth of population sequencing, making it an ideal tool to study mutagenic effects of potential broad-spectrum antivirals on RNA viruses.

    EmPC-seq: Accurate RNA-sequencing and Bioinformatics Platform to Map RNA Polymerases and Remove Background Error

    Transcription errors can substantially affect metabolic processes in organisms by altering the epigenome and causing misincorporations in mRNA, which is translated into aberrant mutant proteins. Moreover, within eukaryotic genomes there are specific Transcription Error-Enriched genomic Loci (TEELs) which are transcribed by RNA polymerases with

    Low-cost and High-throughput RNA-seq Library Preparation for Illumina Sequencing from Plant Tissue
    Authors:  Marta Bjornson, Kaisa Kajala, Cyril Zipfel and Pingtao Ding, date: 10/20/2020, view: 4842, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Transcriptome analysis can provide clues to biological processes affected in different genetic backgrounds or/and under various conditions. The price of RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has decreased enough so that medium- to large-scale transcriptome analyses in a range of conditions are feasible. However, the price and variety of options for library ...
    Low-cost and Multiplexable Whole mRNA-Seq Library Preparation Method with Oligo-dT Magnetic Beads for Illumina Sequencing Platforms
    Authors:  Makoto Kashima, Ayumi Deguchi, Ayumi Tezuka and Atsushi J. Nagano, date: 06/20/2020, view: 5550, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] RNA-Seq is a powerful method for transcriptome analysis used in varied field of biology. Although several commercial products and hand-made protocols enable us to prepare RNA-Seq library from total RNA, their cost are still expensive. Here, we established a low-cost and multiplexable whole mRNA-Seq library preparation method for illumine ...
    HIV-CRISPR: A CRISPR/Cas9 Screening Method to Identify Genes Affecting HIV Replication
    Authors:  Ferdinand Roesch and Molly OhAinle, date: 05/05/2020, view: 6225, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Screening with CRISPR/Cas9 technology has already led to significant discoveries in the fields of cancer biology, cell biology and virology. Because of the relatively low false discovery rates and the ability to perform high-throughput, pooled approaches, it has rapidly become the assay of choice for screening studies, including whole-genome ...
    Sequence Alignment Using Machine Learning for Accurate Template-based Protein Structure Prediction
    Authors:  Shuichiro Makigaki and Takashi Ishida, date: 05/05/2020, view: 4253, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Template-based modeling, the process of predicting the tertiary structure of a protein by using homologous protein structures, is useful when good templates can be available. Indeed, modern homology detection methods can find remote homologs with high sensitivity. However, the accuracy of template-based models generated from the ...
