RNA-seq in Neuroscience
Infographic Feb 11, 2019 | by Ruairi J Mackenzie, Science Writer for Technology Networks
Sometimes, analyzing our DNA sequences isn’t quite enough. RNA-seq is a next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based technique that looks at the RNA transcripts produced from our DNA, allowing us to look into how our genes are expressed.
RNA-seq has shown its worth across many fields, and neuroscience is no exception. In this infographic, we’ll investigate RNA-seq, how it is used in neuroscience, and how it has the potential to advance our understanding of every cell in the brain.

For proteomics researchers, work is almost impossible without mass spectrometry (MS). Neuroscience, however, has largely got by without dipping its toe into the pool of analytical chemistry. With the advent of faster, smarter MS tools, those days may be numbered, as MS-based techniques become an invaluable resource for studying the brain.READ MORE
Cryopreservation, the use of very low temperatures and cryoprotectants to preserve structurally intact cells and tissues, is essential to many areas of research and medicine. Find out why cryopreservation is used, how cryoprotectants reduce cell shrinkage, and learn about the therapies dependent on successful cryopreservation.READ MORE
