Small RNAs are a type of non-coding RNA (ncRNA) molecule that are less than 200 nucloetides in length. They are often involved in post-transcriptional regulation through RNA-RNA interactions.
Small RNA sequencing involves first isolating then sequencing small RNA species, such as microRNA (miRNA). Small RNA sequencing captures the complete range of small RNA and miRNA species in a sample, and can detect and quantify thousands of small RNA and miRNA sequences with great sensitivity and dynamic range. It has been applied to discover novel miRNAs and other small noncoding RNAs, to examine the differential expression of all small RNAs in and to characeterize variations with single-base resolution.
We care for your samples from the start through to the result reporting. Highly experienced laboratory professionals follow strict quality procedures to ensure the integrity of your results.
BGI Small RNA Sequencing services are executed with the BGISEQ sequencing system.
We can process your samples of plant, animal, insect, fungi, prokaryote, plasma, etc. with the following general requirements:
Intact genomic DNA ≥ 1µg, Concentration ≥ 15 ng/ µl
Low Input Samples
Intact genomic DNA ≥ 200 ng, Concentration ≥ 20 ng/ µl
