  • [Small RNA sequencing] 10-12 M raw reads enough?

    Hi, all,

    I am a novice in solid deep sequencing. Months before I made several small RNA libraries using the SOLID total RNA seq Kit. The final concentrations of these libraries were relatively low (about 10 ng/ul), but they all reached the requirement for deep sequencing, and their ratio of 120-130bp/25-150bp, obtained by Agilent bioanalyzer, was above 50%. So we sent them to the sequencing company. The company helped us with the ePCR and sequencing. This week I got the sequencing results. Most libraries got about 10-12 M raw reads, which is lower than the supposed 16 M. Is 10-12 M reads enough for my following bioinformatic analysis? Will the results be accurate to reflect the transcript level of small RNAs in the plant ?

    By the way, I used SOLID barcode primer in the library construction process

    I hope someone here has related experience on small RNA deep sequencing, and is willing to share your knowledge with me? Thank a lot.

    If anything confusing, let me know.

    I think you've posted in the wrong forum. There is a SOLiD forum here.

      Really? which one do I suppose to post?

      I do use SOLID system for my sequencing.

            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...

            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
