RNA-Seq技术的优势

RNA-Seq的动态范围比芯片技术更宽、灵敏度也更高,可检测新型转录本

RNA-Seq与芯片技术比较

RNA测序(RNA-Seq)技术能够快速分析并深入研究任何物种的转录组。与基因表达研究中常用的传统技术——芯片分析相比,该方法拥有许多优势。

RNA-Seq Technology Overview

无偏好的新型转录本检测:与芯片不同,RNA-Seq技术不需要物种或转录本特异性探针。该技术可检测新型转录本、基因融合、单核苷酸变异、插入缺失(小片段插入和缺失)以及之前采用芯片无法检测的其他未知变化。1,2

动态范围更宽:使用芯片杂交技术时,基因表达测定受到背景噪音(下限)和信号饱和(上限)的限制。RNA-Seq技术通过离散的定量以及数字化的read读数提供了更宽的动态范围。 (>105 for RNA-Seq vs. 103 for arrays).1,2,3

特异性和灵敏度更高:与芯片相比,RNA-Seq技术的特异性和灵敏度更高,从而全面提升对基因、转录本以及其他差异表达的检测。4-6

轻松检测稀有和低丰度转录本:轻松提高测序覆盖深度以检测稀有转录本、每个细胞的单一转录本或弱表达基因。

“mRNA-Seq offers improved specificity, so it’s better at detecting transcripts, and specifically isoforms, than microarrays. It’s also more sensitive in detecting differential expression and offers increased dynamic range.”

RNA Sequencing Considerations

Annika Sonntag, PhD and her team originally used microarrays to measure RNA expression, but needed to see exon-specific RNA expression as well. After comparing many technologies, they chose Illumina NGS for their gene expression studies.
