The topic of this Research Award is “Expression Profiling by Sequencing”. NGS is now rapidly substituting all other technologies for gene expression analysis. However, using standard RNA-Seq approaches, where the whole transcriptome is sequenced, for gene expression analysis is not efficient in terms of cost, time and quality.
Lexogen has developed the QuantSeq RNA-Seq Library Prep Kit which utilizes Lexogen’s unique approach for expression profiling by sequencing the 3’ ends or any targeted regions of transcripts. Learn more about QuantSeq.
We believe that expression profiling is one of the fields that can benefit from NGS the most, particularly when the QuantSeq approach is used.
If the current topic of the award does not fit to your research, but you know researchers whose work does fit to the topic, you can still benefit. Simply participate in our "Recommendation program".
