The solutions cover a great variety of transcriptome sequencing projects and generate a comprehensive, genome-wide picture of gene-expression levels in different cells and thus provide a deeper understanding of what constitutes a specific cell type. This information is especially important for research on cell function and on how changes in transcriptional activity may reflect or contribute to diseases. The different packages are based on the best applicable library solution for eukaryotes or prokaryotes, the sample sequencing and the bioinformatics. Thereby raw data are processed within bioinformatics analysis and summarised in a ‘GATC Biotech Data Report’ providing the results in a clear, understandable and informative way.
"Introducing these standardised, reliable packages based on our long standing experience, we are pleased to improve the understanding how a cell works." said Dr. Tobias Paprotka, GATC Biotech’s Head of R&D. "These new products strengthen GATC Biotech’s NGS portfolio to study RNA expressed from the genome, revealing a more complex picture of the gene expression behind it all." he added.
Depending on the chosen service, both common and rare transcripts identification, analysis of differential gene expression, detection of rare and novel transcripts, alternative splicing as well as information on the orientation and structure of the transcript (strand specific information)
