RASL-seq for Massively Parallel and Quantitative Analysis of Gene Expression.

Curr Protoc Mol Biol. 2012 Apr;Chapter 4:Unit4.13

Authors: Li H, Qiu J, Fu XD

Large-scale, quantitative analysis of gene expression can be accomplished by microarray or RNA-seq analysis. While these methods are applicable to genome-wide analysis, it is often desirable to quantify expression of a more limited set of genes in hundreds, thousands, or even tens of thousands of biological samples. For example, some studies may require monitoring a sizable panel of key genes under many different experimental conditions, during development, or following treatment with a large library of small molecules, for which current genome-wide methods are either inefficient or cost-prohibitive. This unit presents a method that permits quantitative profiling of several hundred selected genes in a large number of samples by coupling RNA-mediated oligonucleotide Annealing, Selection, and Ligation with Next-Gen sequencing (RASL-seq). The method even allows direct analysis of RNA levels in cell lysates and is also adaptable to full automation, making it ideal for large-scale analysis of multiple biological pathways or regulatory gene networks in the context of systematic genetic or chemical genetic perturbations.
