Whole Transcriptome Sequencing


An Accessible, Cost Effective Sequencing Solution to Enable Rapid Discovery with Industry Leading Turnaround Times.

Service Description

Transcriptome Sequencing is used to reveal the presence, quantity and structure of RNA in a biological sample under speci c conditions. Compared to hybridization-based RNA quantification method such as microarray, sequencing-based transcriptome detection can quantify gene expression with low background, high accuracy and high levels of reproducibility within a large dynamic range. In addition, transcriptome sequencing does not require existing genome sequence and can detect mutations/SNPs, splice variants and fusion genes that can not be obtained by microarrays.

Sequencing Service Specification

BGI transcriptome sequencing services are executed with the Illumina HiSeq 4000 sequencing system.
