What It Means to Generate Robust Data in RNA GEP

Masthead - Robust_Data_Banner.png

The goal of most biologic research, including the pursuit of novel therapies to fight disease, is to generate ROBUST data sets so that reliable correlations can be established. But what does “robust” mean when it comes to RNA gene expression profiling (GEP)?

Considerations When Planning Spatial Transcriptomics Analysis

The gold standard for gene expression profiling is bulk RNA sequencing (RNA-seq). RNA-seq performed on biologic samples reveals the specific genes which are differentially expressed under certain conditions. To complement the information obtained from bulk RNA-seq researchers have developed single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) techniques. As the name implies, scRNA-seq focuses on obtaining the RNA profiles of a specific type of cells extracted from a heterogeneous sample. Yet another innovation in the field of gene expression came with the development of the Spatial Gene Expression Profiling (spatial GEP) technique.

RNA sequencing, also known as RNA-seq, is a genomic method for finding and quantifying messenger and micro RNA molecules in a biological sample. Examples of scRNA-seq and multi-cell/bulk (sourced from multiple cells or bulk tissue sample) RNA profiling complementing each other can be found across numerous scientific research disciplines.

Simplified Processing Workflow Can Help Laboratories Struggling with Labor Crisis

When it comes to bulk RNA research the lack of workers has caused a backlog of research testing which is essential to advance the development of safe and effective therapies for many conditions including life-threatening cancers. HTG EdgeSeq is a sample-sparing approach to gene expression profiling and that means that precious biobanks can be preserved and less time will be spent collecting and processing crude tissue samples.

Role of miRNAs in Metabolic Vascular Disease

Masthead - Limb_Ischemia.png

Peripheral artery disease (also called peripheral arterial disease or PAD) is a common vascular condition in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the arms or legs.

Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is a severe blockage in the arteries of the lower extremities, which markedly reduces blood-flow.

volcano plot is useful for identifying events that differ significantly between two groups of experimental subjects. The name volcano plot comes from its resemblance to a volcanic eruption with the most significant points at the top, like spewed pieces of molten lava.
