RNA-seq is a next-generation sequencing technique that measures the abundance of RNA transcripts in a sample. RNA-seq can be used to identify gene expression changes, alternative splicing events, allele-specific gene expression, gene fusion events, and novel transcripts across an entire genome. It is a powerful tool for understanding dynamics in the transcriptome, including gene expression level differences between different physiologic conditions, or changes that occur during development or over the course of disease progression.

Please join us to learn about the resources that the Columbia Genome Center provides, and for a series of scientific talks explaining how RNA-seq is enabling novel discoveries across a range of fields.
