Achieve cost-effective, accurate, and sensitive RNA exome analysis of even difficult samples without sacrificing gene fusion discovery power. Many RNA exome sequencing methods focus on a defined number of known transcripts or require expensive deep sequencing. RNA exome capture sequencing overcomes these challenges by combining RNA-Seq with exome enrichment.
This method captures only the coding regions of the transcriptome, allowing higher throughput and requiring lower sequencing depth than non-exome capture methods. Sequence-specific capture of the RNA exome does not rely on the presence of a poly-A tail. This makes RNA exome capture sequencing ideal for RNA-Seq with low-quality samples or limited starting material.
Isolating transcriptome coding regions maximizes discovery power at a fraction of the read depth of total RNA sequencing.
