FDA SEQC Study Shows RNA-seq is Reproducible for Relative Expression, Can ID New Splice Junctions | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – RNA sequencing is able to accurately measure relative expression levels, irrespective of sequencing platform and user site, but no gene expression technology provides accurate absolute measurements, according to a new study by the SEQC/MAQC-III consortium.

The study also found that RNA-seq is a powerful tool for the discovery of novel splice junctions, though their biological significance remains to be elucidated.
