Join us for our webinar, Transcript detection and quantification using Kinnex full-length RNA sequencing data, where we will evaluate the prowess of long-read RNA sequencing (lrRNA-Seq) in the realm of isoform discovery, quantification, and differential expression analysis. As the RNA research field advances, we spotlight the Kinnex full-length RNA data's potential in overcoming traditional lrRNA-Seq challenges.

Come learn how David Wissel from ETH Zurich uses MAS-Seq technology, integral to Kinnex kits, to enhance throughput for lrRNA-Seq, facilitating more comprehensive transcript quantification. The analysis will contrast Kinnex data with short-read RNA-Seq using spike-in RNA variant control mixes and assess its efficacy in differential transcript expression and usage. Additionally, we will introduce an accessible Snakemake workflow, tailoring bioinformatics processes for efficient isoform analysis in multi-sample studies. Uncover the bioinformatics frontier in RNA sequencing research.

Why Attend?

  • Explore isoform significance: Discover the pivotal role of isoforms, not just genes, in understanding biology and disease.
  • Learn advanced RNA sequencing techniques: Grasp how full-length RNA sequencing with PacBio HiFi, integrated with bioinformatics analysis, provides extraordinary isoform information that other technologies may not match.
  • Get a first look at Kinnex data: Gain insights into Kinnex full-length RNA data for cost-effective, high-quality RNA sequencing.
  • Master Kinnex data analysis: Enhance your skills in isoform discovery, quantification, and differential expression by learning to analyze Kinnex full-length RNA data using SMRT Link and community bioinformatics tools.

This webinar is designed to assure potential users of the high quality and ease of analyzing Kinnex data, addressing common bioinformatics and analysis challenges in RNA research. It's an essential session for researchers keen on pushing the boundaries of RNA sequencing and bioinformatics.

Don’t forget to stick around and have your questions answered during the live Q&A session at the end of the event!
