RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) leverages next generation sequencing (NGS) to provide insights into global transcriptional events, coding mRNA transcripts or on the profiles of RNA species, such as lncRNA. RNA library preparation for NGS utilizes specific strategies, such as enrichment of mRNA or depletion of rRNA, based on the objective of the sequencing experiment.
