RNA-Seq for Quantification

RNA-Seq for Quantification

Service Description

BGI’s RNA-Seq (Quantification) is used to reveal the presence and quantity of RNA in a biological sample under specific conditions. Compared to hybridization-based RNA quantification methods such as microarray analysis, sequencing-based transcriptome detection can quantify gene expression with low background, high accuracy and high levels of reproducibility within a large dynamic range. RNA-Seq (Quantification) allows the entire transcriptome to be surveyed in a very high-throughput and quantitative manner at single-base resolution.
