RNA Analysis

Illumina™ RNA Library Preparation


Total RNA library preparation incl. depletion of rRNA

Goal: sequencing of all coding and non coding RNA within a sample after rRNA removal. Additionally, mitochondrial RNA may also be removed. 

  • Human
  • Mouse
  • Rat
  • Gram-positive bacteria
  • Gram-negative bacteria
  • Plant Leaf/Seed/Root

mRNA library preparation

Goal: sequencing of the massenger RNA which codes for proteins. Identification of over and under expressed genes, novel transcripts and fusion products within the transcriptome

  • mRNA with stranded orientation

Single cell and low input RNA library preparation

Goal: sequencing of full-length transcripts from a single cell or low input RNA.

  • starting from 2 pg input RNA

small RNA library preparation

Goal: sequencing of small and miRNAs wich are expressed within a sample to identify post-transcriptional gene silencing and regulation.

  • miRNA libraries
  • small RNA libraries
