Total RNA Sequencing

Unveiling the Cellular Transcript Landscape

Total RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) is a powerful technique that provides a comprehensive analysis of a cell's RNA profile. Unlike traditional methods focusing on messenger RNA (mRNA), total RNA-Seq captures the entire spectrum of RNA molecules, including:

  • Messenger RNA (mRNA): The blueprint for protein production.

  • Non-coding RNA (ncRNA): Diverse RNA molecules with crucial regulatory functions. This includes long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), microRNAs (miRNAs), and transfer RNAs (tRNAs).
