  • ncRNA and miRNA from RNA-seq

    I have a dataset paired end with enough reads and coverage. I have analyzed the RNA-seq data for Differentila splicing and expression. My question is can I analyze ncRNA/ mirRNA in the same dataset? Any link or experience will be useful.

    Thanks

    Could you please be more specific on your data . Which plateform (illumina, roche,...) ? Is the library poly-A (if yes, you can not detect ncRNA) ?

      ncRNA in RNA-seq

      Yes it is poly A and Illumina plateform. What is the best way of performing an RNA-seq in Illumina to find out ncRNA as well as expression?

      Thanks

        The methods for preparing standard RNA vs. small RNA libraries are different. Poly(A)+ selection is specific for mRNAs, while small RNA protocols exploit the size difference and/or unique chemistry of the ends. The best approach is to construct libraries of each type.

          You will only really be able to find poly adenylated non coding RNAs and possible miRNA precursors.

          If you are truly interested in longer non coding you will need Total RNA-seq libraries. For anything smaller you need to do the small RNA protocol for things under ~50 bp.

          We have also found that having all three, Total RNA, mRNA and small, while more work and cost is incredibly informative.

            Hi, I have two relevant questions:

            (1) What's the proportion of ncRNAs without poly adenylated tails?
            (2) for total RNA-seq, do we need to deplete rRNAs and tRNAs?

              Would it be possible to identify miRNAs and other small ncRNAs in a paired-end dataset consisting of total RNA (rRNA depleted) that has not been size-selected?

              mnkyboy: If analysing total RNA, mRNA and small RNA in parallel, is it possible to add standards to the three libraries to be able to compare them quantitatively? I would like to compare the abundance of small ncRNAs and of their precursors, and possibly of their targets.

              Thanks for any input!

                Hi Xi,
                I also have the question about the propotion of poly adenylated ncRNAs.

                For the sequencing of total RNA, depletion of rRNA is utterly required and rRNA propotion remains considerable even after depletion.

                    Hi Xi,

                    I'm Xie Peng : ) And I'm dealing with total RNA data and getting to know the protocol from our collaborators who are biologists.

                    It happens that our lab had Prof. Malmberg from University of Gorgia, who is scaning ncRNAs in genomes, to give a lecture today. He also doesn't have an answer to the question about proportion of poly-A ncRNAs.

                      In RNA-seq you cannot find miRNAs, you can capture precursors of miRNAs with quite low abundance comparing to protein-coding transcripts.

                        In many gene annotation databases, miRNA host genes are defined as ncRNAs. As miRNAs can be embedded in introns of coding RNAs, I think these corresponding pre-miRNAs can also be different splice-forms of coding transcripts. Why did you said the abundance of pre-miRNAs were low? Is it because of the polyA-tail capture?

                          Hi Nice to meet you here. ncRNA is a hot topic but lots of questions to be answered. Hopefully, you and your collaborator can answer this question :-)

                            Thank you. I'm just curious about the relative abundance of miRNA compared with that of mRNA, in the sense of copy number. Do you have any ideas about that?

                              Yes, glad to meet you, too : ) Is ncRNA your current research interest?

                                by seqadmin




                                The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

                                In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
