Ribonucleic Acid (RNA) Sequencing

RNA Sequencing is a powerful method for analyzing global gene expression levels and providing in-depth analysis of the transcriptome. RNA Sequencing can be used to accurately analyze low expression genes and transcripts often not detected by other methods, discover novel genes and isoforms, and assemble transcriptomes not previously studied.

Genome Explorations offers complete RNA sequencing solutions to mee the needs of any project. Additionally Genome Explorations is the industry leader in MicroRNA Expression Services as the first service provider to offer MiRNA expression analysis using TaqMan® MicroRNA Assays on TLDA arrays from Applied Biosystems (ThermoFisher/Life Technologies).

MicroRNA (miRNA) Expression Services

Micro RNA-Sequencing enables analysis of small and microRNAs, which often regulate genes at the transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels. MicroRNAs have been shown to regulate a number of biological processes including development, cell differentiation, and apoptosis. 

TaqMan® MicroRNA Arrays and Assays are specifically designed to detect mature miRNA, which is the active form of miRNA, thus eliminating the confusion caused by detection of inactive precursor molecules, and can be readily used with difficult serum and plasma derived samples.

Individual TaqMan® MicroRNA Assays and custom TaqMan® Assays for other small non-coding RNA are available for a variety of species including:

Human, Mouse, Rat, Arabidopsis thaliana, Caenorhabditis elegans, and Drosophila melanogaster

Genome Explorations also offers GeneChip® miRNA Arrays which are powerful tools for studying the roles and importance of small non-coding RNA (miRNA, snoRNA, and scaRNA)in cancer and other diseases. The most recent version of the GeneChip® miRNA Array detects over 32,000 small non-coding RNAs from more than 34 different species, including 100% coverage of miRBase version 20 and snoBase version 3.

Stranded RNA Seq


Stranded RNA Sequencing provides gene expression information with relation to strand orientation. This facilitates allele-specific expression analysis.

Standard RNA Sequencing

Standard RNA Sequencing analyzes the expression of RNA across the entire transcriptome. Standard RNA sequencing can be applied to both mRNA and lncRNA, without the need for a reference sequence.  Standard RNA Sequencing provides the most encompassing overview of gene and transcript expression.

Single-cell RNA Seq


Single-cell RNA Sequencing allows expression analysis from low-input total RNA samples (as low as 10 pg) and single cells in solution. Popular studies involve analyzing cells after FACS (fluorescence-activated cell sorting) or other sorting methods.
