The study of RNA transcription and interference has grown tremendously since the discovery of microRNA. The term “small RNA” has now come to include many types of RNA, such as microRNA (miRNA), short interfering RNA (siRNA), piwi-interacting RNA (piRNA), and more.
Ion Torrent™ next-generation sequencing systems provide sequencing-based analysis of all known and novel small RNA transcripts in a strand-specific, hypothesis-free fashion. Ion Torrent next-generation sequencers offer a range of integrated, optimized reagents and workflows for sample preparation through data analysis in your research.
Ion Torrent™ small RNA sequencing enables a single-day workflow, intuitive analysis, and a short sequencing run. Fast and affordable, the price of sequencing a single sample per chip is comparable to that of microarrays.Learn more
Small noncoding RNAs are typically only ~18–40 nucleotides in length; however, they have been shown to play critical roles in cellular processes such as developmental timing, cell fate, tumor progression, and neurogenesis.
