Study Shows Single-Molecule RNA-seq Covers Low-Level Transcripts Better than PCR-Based Methods | GenomeWeb

By Julia Karow

In a comparison of RNA-seq by single-molecule sequencing and amplification-based sequencing to study cancer samples, researchers at the University of Michigan have found that single-molecule sequencing is better at detecting low-abundance transcripts and shows less bias towards highly expressed genes.
