Advances in NGS Gene Expression Studies to Reduce The Cost of Sequencing

GenomeWebinar

Assistant Professor, Division of Microbiology, Tulane University

Senior Global Marketing Manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific

This webinar discusses the use of 3’ mRNA sequencing to reduce the cost of gene expression studies on Illumina NGS systems.

Focusing on a study that used peripheral blood mononuclear cells from pregnant macaques acutely infected with Zika virus, Dr. Nicholas Maness of Tulane University discusses the pros and cons of 3’ mRNA sequencing compared to whole-transcriptome sequencing for gene expression studies. He details the differences in the data collected and the costs of each approach and offers suggestions on when to use each method.

This webinar is a must-see for anyone seeking to reduce the cost of sequencing from gene expression studies or who wish to perform pilot studies inexpensively.

Cris Kinross of Thermo Fisher Scientific provides an overview of the differences between 3’ mRNA-seq, mRNA-seq, and whole-transcriptome sequencing.

 In this webinar, you learn how to:

  • Reduce the cost of NGS gene expression studies
  • Consider if 3’ mRNA sequencing or whole-transcriptome sequencing meets the needs of your project
  • Obtain answers more quickly using smaller data sets
