The SOLiD® Total RNA-Seq Kit provides protocols and reagents for the construction of strand-specific libraries for small RNAs or the whole transcriptome. Specifically designed for use with the SOLiD® or 5500 Systems, the SOLiD® Total RNA-Seq Kit contains enough reagents to process up to 12 samples. In addition, both the small RNA protocol and the whole transcriptome protocol are compatible with the SOLiD® RNA Barcoding Kits. Features of the SOLiD® Total RNA-Seq Kit include:

• Paired-end reads enable accurate detection of splice variants and fusion transcripts
• Genomic DNA strand specificity is maintained, simplifying mapping to a reference database
• Uses total RNA, rRNA depleted RNA, or Poly(A+) RNA as input

Interrogate both small RNA and the whole transcriptome on the SOLiD® Sequencing System
For small RNA, libraries are generated from total RNA samples, or enriched for small RNA, for discovery via SOLiD® System sequencing. This is a robust method for whole genome discovery and the analysis of small non-coding RNA in general, and miRNA in particular. For whole transcriptome analysis, strand-specific libraries are constructed from total RNA, ribosomal RNA depleted total RNA or Poly(A+) RNA. Because the input RNA is not limited to Poly(A+) only, a more thorough investigation of the complexity of the transcriptome can be performed. For removal of ribosomal RNA, the RiboMinus™ Eukaryote System v2 or Low Input RiboMinus™ Eukaryote System v2 are recommended.

Genomic DNA strand specificity is maintained
High-throughput sequencing shows that non-coding RNA (ncRNA), typically representing a significant fraction of the eukaryotic genome, may be transcribed from both strands of the same genomic DNA region. The SOLiD® Total RNA-Seq Kit uses proprietary Ligase-Enhanced Genome Detection (LEGenD™) technology to convert RNA into a library of double-stranded cDNA molecules. Because the adapters are added simultaneously and in a directional manner, genomic DNA strand specificity is maintained. The final products are compatible with emulsion PCR on the SOLiD® System.
