This webinar will discuss 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 will discuss the pros and cons of 3’ mRNA sequencing compared to whole-transcriptome sequencing for gene expression studies. He will detail the differences in the data collected and the costs of each approach and will offer 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 will also provide an overview of the differences between 3’ mRNA-seq, mRNA-seq, and whole-transcriptome sequencing.
In this webinar, you will 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
