Purdue Genomics Core Forum set for Monday

The next session of the Purdue Genomics Core Forum will be 2 p.m. Monday (Oct. 30) in Whistler Hall of Agricultural Research, Room 116.

The topic of the session will be "Introduction to Transcriptome Analysis Using RNASeq." The forum is free and open to the public. Phillip SanMiguel, director of the Purdue Genomics Core Facility, will give an overview of the facility's commonly used RNASeq service.

If the DNA genome spells out the entirety of an organism's genetic tool kit, the RNA transcriptome speaks to which of those tools are currently in use in a given sample. Hence the popularity of a multitude of RNA sequence assays available via Illumina Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). This talk will give background on the basis of RNAseq "library construction" of various types as well as an overview of the various issues involved with working with RNA.  

Following the overview, SanMiguel will open the floor to questions about new projects or projects that have already been run.
