RNA-Seq Study Provides Insights into Alternative Splicing in Human Cells | GenomeWeb
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – New research has used sequencing to provide a direct view of the complex alternative splicing patterns in the human genome.
In a paper published online today in Science Express, German researchers used the approach, called RNA-Seq, to map and compare the transcriptomes in two different human cell types. In the process, they uncovered new transcriptional units — and got an unprecedented picture of the type and frequency of alternative splicing events in these cells.
