Transcriptome Sequencing Becoming Key Approach to Study Disease and Guide Treatment | GenomeWeb

By Monica Heger

Transcriptome sequencing is gaining ground as a method of choice for studying diseases such as cancer due to its ability to provide information on gene expression and alternative splicing events — information not available from exome sequencing or even whole-genome sequencing — researchers reported at last week's Beyond the Genome conference in Boston.
