Targeted RNA-seq for Illumina
Save cost and simplify analysis
SMARTer Target RNA Capture for Illumina is a complete system designed to generate cDNA from enriched total RNA. Targeted RNA-seq can overcome several challenges inherent in whole transcriptome amplification (WTA) RNA-seq experiments, improving sequence coverage and sensitivity of detection of transcripts of interest that may be present in low amounts. Targeted RNA-seq approaches are also advantageous in saving costs and simplifying analysis. Enrichment of transcripts of interest prior to cDNA synthesis enables the capture of information about transcripts that could otherwise be missed or require a much greater number of sequencing reads to be detected, including chimeric gene fusions, transcript isoforms, and splice variants.
