  • miRNA and RNAseq - together or seperate?

    Hi, I am interested in doing a miRNA NGS, specifically the TruSeq Small RNA Sample. I would also like to look more generally at RNAseq expression.
    Should I do the TruSeq Small RNA sample kit *and* the TruSeq Stranded, so two different sets of data, or could I just do the TruSeq Small RNA Sample, will that also capture most of the other RNAseq info as well as the miRNAs, or does it really only focus on miRNAs and exclude everything else?

    thanks.

    Small RNA library preparation involves ligating adapters to termini of RNA and PCR after RT reaction. The reaction condition is optimised for amplification of small RNA species, so the larger RNA fractions will not amplify efficiently. In addition, there is a gel size selection step which cuts fragments generated from small RNA fraction for sequencing. RNAseq libraries are prepared by random priming of fragmented RNA, so the small RNA will not have much chance of primer binding and reverse transcription. If the aim is to study both small RNA and total RNA-rRNA or mRNA from the same sample, separate libraries have to be prepared for each.

      Thank you nucacidhunter, that is an extremely helpful answer and exactly what I was after!. I appreciate your time.

        Hi All, I am doing RNA-Seq (reads mapped to human genome) and want to find significant Differential expressed genes, but I also find there is some reads counts mapped to miRNA, is it normal? Do I need to separate them to analysis it ? Or together analysis it? As nucacidhunter said, if I want to separate analysis , I need to re-prepare libraries (separate libraries)

          What do you think about this article

          It claims that you can analyse both long and small RNA simultaneously

            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...
