Default Announcement of the Test Program for Spike-In RNA Variants (SIRVs)

Lexogen has developed Spike-In RNA Variants (SIRVs) for the quantification of mRNA isoforms in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). The SIRVs address the issue of the lack of the transcript spike-in controls of representative complexity for evaluation of RNA-Seq steps. These are 69 artificial transcript variants derived from 7 human model genes, which were extended by exemplary isoforms to comprehensively reflect known variations of alternative splicing, alternative transcription start- and end-sites, overlapping genes and antisense transcription. Moreover, the SIRVs sequences were modified to conform to the GT-AG exon-intron junction rule with few exceptions harboring the less frequently occurring natural variations GC-AT and AT-AC.

The SIRVs are already available for testing. Thus, if you want to evaluate your existing RNA-Seq pipeline and/or explore new experimental approaches, be it in library preparation, sequencing and/or data analysis, you can already include the SIRVs into upcoming experiments of your interest. The aim of this Test Program is to obtain a broad test base with respect to input material, library preparation, sequencing platform / sequencing modes, as well as the subsequent data processing routine. All participants should profit from this broad test scope, which excels the capacity of individual facilities.
