A University of Utah team outlines a sequencing strategy designed to assess the capped 5' ends of RNA in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples. The method — called FFPEcap-seq — includes template switching and an enzymatic enrichment step to boost the representation of 5' RNA ends, the researchers explain, noting that the strategy shares features with existing START-seq and nanoCAGE library construction methods.
