    Long Non-Coding RNA Sequencing

    Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a large class of transcribed RNA molecules with a length of more than 200 nucleotides that do not encode proteins. Contact us today with any questions or for a no obligation quote.

    Long Non-Coding RNA Sequencing Introduction

    Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are thought to encompass nearly 30,000 different transcripts in humans, hence lncRNA transcripts account for the major part of the non-coding transcriptome. lncRNA discovery is still at an early stage and only a small proportion of lncRNAs have so far been investigated. Although we can start to classify different types of lncRNA functions, we are still far from being able to predict the function of new lncRNAs.

    BGI offers expression profiling as one way to uncover the function of lncRNA. Identifying lncRNAs that are differentially expressed during development or in particular situations can shed light on their potential functions. Alternatively, looking for lncRNAs and protein-coding genes whose expression is correlated, can indicate co-regulation or related functions.

    Unique DNBSEQ™ Sequencing Technology

    BGI's Long Non-Coding RNA Sequencing services are typically executed with proprietary DNBSEQ™ sequencing technology platforms, for great sequencing data at some of the lowest costs in the industry. DNBSEQ™ is a proprietary sequencing technology, first developed by BGI's Complete Genomics subsidiary in Silicon Valley and offers advantages in terms of lower amplification error rates and much lower duplication rates in WGS/WES applications. In addition, studies have shown the index hopping rate in DNBSEQ™ platforms to be much lower when compared to that of other platforms.
