Why Is Transcriptome Sequencing Important?
RNA sequencing gives researchers more visibility into previously undetected changes that occur in certain states of diseases. Using RNA sequencing, researchers can learn more about a transcriptome’s new and existing qualities in just one assessment. They can also see how a transcriptome reacts to certain therapies, environmental situations, and other conditions. RNA sequencing even reveals alternative gene-spliced transcripts, gene fusion, mutations and variants, post-transcriptional modifications, and other gene expressions.
As DNA sequencing technology advances, RNA/transcriptome sequencing becomes more affordable and widely available. This has made RNA sequencing an excellent tool for RNA editing, RNA profiling, and allele-specific expression.
