Based on nanopore full-length cDNA sequencing, CD Genomics can help researchers to generate full-length transcript sequences containing the entire isomers, helping to more accurate identification of alternative splicing events and improve the analysis of transcriptional isoform expression.
Full-length cDNA contains the complete sequence information of the respective mRNA templates. This information contains knowledge of the protein encoded by the original mRNA and the untranslated region (UTR) of that mRNA, which can be obtained by full-length cDNA sequencing.
As the most widely used high-throughput sequencing method today, short-read RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has greatly expanded our ability to study transcriptome complexity. However, during sequencing, transcripts need to be cleaved into smaller fragments and then computationally reassembled due to short-read RNA-seq reads are only present a few hundred bases. As the number of alternative splice forms of genes increases, it becomes increasingly challenging to correctly assemble transcripts by computation. The disadvantages of short reads, such as uneven read coverage, complex splicing, and potential sequencing bias, will result in some information being lost from the original full-length transcripts.
