As one of the providers of targeted RNA sequencing analysis, CD Genomics uses bioinformatics to help you understand specific genome-scale transcripts. Our high-quality data analysis platform will be used to generate high-quality analysis results in a fast analysis cycle.
RNA sequencing is the standard method for analyzing gene expression in many biological systems. Targeted RNA sequencing is a cost-effective tool that focuses on sequencing genes of interest, providing high sensitivity for transcript detection and quantification. This approach provides deep sequencing of targeted regions while ignoring unwanted regions that often result in a large number of sequencing reads that are not relevant to the study. As a sequencing-based gene expression profiling method, targeted RNA sequencing allows for the quantification of messenger RNA (mRNA) or targeted non-coding RNA (ncRNA) levels for up to 300 customer-defined genes in a single amplification reaction. Analysis of targeted RNA sequencing data is a valuable tool for dissecting the transcriptome and revealing the complexity of gene regulation.

Our targeted RNA sequencing analysis is used in a wide range of areas of biological research, including but not limited to:
Rare variant analysis: our targeted RNA sequencing analysis provides a focused approach to identify and characterize rare genetic variants within specific gene regions of interest. Through deep sequencing and comprehensive analysis, we help you identify rare variants, elucidate their functional consequences, and reveal their contribution to disease susceptibility and pathogenesis.
Disease biomarker discovery: our targeted RNA sequencing analysis allows for comprehensive analysis of genes associated with a specific disease or biological process. By comparing gene expression patterns between healthy and diseased samples, our researchers can identify potential biomarkers that hold promise for early detection, patient stratification, and personalized treatment strategies.
Pathway analysis and functional annotation: our targeted RNA sequencing analysis allows our researchers to study gene expression in specific biological pathways or functional categories. By focusing on genes of interest, we can help you gain greater insight into the underlying molecular mechanisms and biological processes involved.
Single cell RNA sequencing experiments: our targeted RNA sequencing analysis can be applied to scRNA-seq experiments, allowing our researchers to analyze gene expression in specific cell types or subpopulations. By combining the resolution of single-cell analysis with targeted approaches, we help you uncover molecular diversity within complex tissues and gain insight into cell-specific functions and interactions.
CD Genomics utilizes cutting-edge technology and powerful analytical methods to provide accurate and reliable analysis for targeted RNA sequencing, allowing valuable information to be extracted from the transcriptome of interest. Our services cover the entire workflow of targeted RNA sequencing analysis from pre-processing to data analysis.
(1) Data pre-processing and quality control
Our skilled bioinformaticians use state-of-the-art algorithms and quality control metrics to carefully process raw RNA-seq data. By performing adapter trimming, read filtering and quality assessment, we ensure that only high quality data is available for further analysis.
(2) Read mapping and transcript quantification
Using our expertise and advanced algorithms, we match sequencing reads to a reference genome, transcriptome, or custom target region of interest. Our powerful quantification methods accurately estimate gene expression levels, facilitate accurate comparisons between samples and reveal differential expression patterns.
(3) Differential gene expression analysis
CD Genomics provides cutting-edge algorithms and statistical methods to analyze differential gene expression in targeted RNA sequencing data. By performing rigorous statistical tests and controlled multiple testing, we reveal genes that are significantly up- or down-regulated, revealing key biological processes and pathways.
