Viral RNA Sequencing

New coronavirus (COVID-19)

RNA sequencing is a transcriptome analysis technique using high-throughput sequencing. It can provide an accurate estimate of isoform abundance over a wide dynamic range. The wide dynamic range enables us to determine the high and low expression levels in single viral RNA sequencing experiments, thus greatly improving the efficiency of analysis. Therefore, RNA-seq is significant in both basic research and clinical practice. Viral RNA sequencing refers to the sequencing of all the viral transcriptional information, which is time-saving and economical. In addition, using long-read sequencing (LRS) to solve complex transcriptome structures has become a popular research approach.

Application of Viral RNA Sequencing

With the global spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) and the continuous development of sequencing technology, next-generation sequencing technology has been used in clinical and environmental sample analysis to identify possible viral pathogens. Viral RNA sequencing has discovered numerous new, uncharacterized viruses in many virus families. Besides, comparing the sequences of archived viruses collected over the years allows us to study the evolution of viruses and help design new vaccines.
