High Throughput Sequencing-Based Approaches for Gene Expression Analysis
Next-generation sequencing has emerged as the method of choice to answer fundamental questions in biology. The massively parallel sequencing technology for RNA-Seq analysis enables better understanding of gene expression patterns in model and nonmodel organisms. Sequencing per se has reached the stage of commodity level while analyzing and interpreting huge amount of data has been a significant challenge. This chapter is aimed at discussing the complexities involved in sequencing and analysis, and tries to simplify sequencing based gene expression analysis. Biologists and experimental scientists were kept in mind while discussing the methods and analysis workflow.
