This webinar will present a method for RNA-seq expression analysis of FFPE-derived RNA samples that are too degraded for successful application of standard RNA-seq techniques.

Biobanks consisting of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) patient samples, collected over decades, present unique opportunities for studying gene expression in large cohorts of patients with a given disease. This approach, however, has been limited by the high degree of RNA degradation in FFPE-derived samples, in some cases leading to more than half of the biobank samples being discarded.
