Cornell University

RNA-Seq Standard package

  • Sample submission: 10ng — 1ug purified RNA (see below).
    ‘Bioanalyzer QC’ is highly recommended; contact us for information about RNA QC options.
  • Library preparation: NEBNext Ultra II [Directional] RNA
    PolyA* enrichment (included) or ribosomal RNA depletion (extra cost; we can deplete animal and/or bacterial rRNA).
  • Directional (stranded, default) or non-directional (non-stranded, recommended for input < 20ng total RNA).
  • Sequencing: minimum 20M raw reads.
    Deeper sequencing is available on request (extra cost).
  • Standard analysis: Read preprocessing, mapping to reference genome, data QC reports including mapping rate and sample
    clustering analyses, differential gene expression analysis (DESeq2).
    Alternative analysis modes including pathogen discovery are also available; contact us for information.
