Title: KAPA RNA HyperPrep: Improved Performance with Degraded Inputs & Tumor Profiling Applications
Date: Wednesday, April 26, 2017
Time: 3:00pm

High-resolution RNA analysis using next-generation sequencing (RNA-seq) is a rapidly growing application in disease research. The quality of RNA extracted from biological specimens is highly variable and yields are often low, thus impacting the ability to generate high-quality sequencing libraries.

In this presentation, we will:

  • Discuss improvements in the library preparation workflow
  • Provide guidance on working with low input & degraded samples
  • Demonstrate improved detection of differential expression in tumor profiling
