  • house-keeping genes in RNA-seq data sets?

    Hi All,
    Does anyone out there know of a good reference or two on the depth of coverage required to cover most transcripts and gauge expression levels in RNA-seq experiments? In particular, can anyone give me an idea of what percentage of sequences in their RNA-seq data sets are from what you would consider house-keeping genes? I have one reference in yeast from Wilhelm and Landry (2009) but I can't seem to find much else.
    many thanks . . .

    You might wanna take a look at this publication:

    Ramsköld,D. et al. (2009) An abundance of ubiquitously expressed genes revealed by tissue transcriptome sequence data. PLoS computational biology, 5, e1000598.

        That's very interesting, ignoring UTR mapped reads to remove the bias in rna-seq data!

          Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
          by seqadmin


          Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

          Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
          by seqadmin


          Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
