  • rRNA removal for RNAseq analysis

    Hi all,

    Do you think we need to filter rRNA and low complexity reads from Poly-A selected total mRNAseq stranded data before performing RNAseq analysis (tophat2-htseq-deseq2)? I am sorry if I have missed any previous post on similar matter.

    Thanks for your help.

    Generally not necessary, but it doesn't really hurt. Also, depending on what GTF file you provide to htseq, rRNAs may be excluded anyways.

      A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
      by seqadmin

      ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

      Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
      by seqadmin
      Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

      The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
