RNA-Seq Data Comparison with Gene Expression Microarrays
A cross-platform comparison of differential gene expression analysis.
RNA-Seq is a powerful sequencing method that enables researchers to discover, profile and quantifyRNA transcripts across the entire transcriptome. Because the method does not require probes or primers, the generated data are completely unbiased, allowing for hypothesis-free experimental design. The ability to provide this type of analysis provides researchers a powerful tool for transcript discovery applications that are not possible using traditional microarray-based methods.
