Head-to-Head Comparison Considers RNA Sequencing Methods for Degraded, Low-Quantity RNA Samples | GenomeWeb

Members of a methods testing and development group at the Broad Institute have published a new comparison of RNA sequencing methods that focuses on samples with low RNA quality and/or quantity.
"The 'easy' samples, people already have solutions for," co-senior author Joshua Levin, with the Broad Institute's Genome Sequencing and Analysis Program, told In Sequence. "But people are always coming to us with other samples that they want to work on, so we were trying to figure out which method would be the best one to use."
