 Elucidating Transcriptome Complexity using Massive RNA-Seq Data

(大数据时代的转录组分析)

The recent advent of the high-throughput RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) technology has provided a powerful tool for transcriptome-wide measurements of mRNA isoform complexity at an unprecedented resolution. By generating massive amounts of sequence reads from a given RNA sample, researchers can reveal the identity and quantify the abundance of mRNA isoforms across the entire transcriptome. Large consortium projects are generating RNA-seq data on tens of thousands of samples along with a wide variety of other genomic and phenotypic measurements. However, the enormous potential of these large, complex datasets cannot be fully realized without the development of methods for discovering patterns and generating biological insights from big transcriptome and genome data. In this talk, I will discuss our recent efforts in developing computational and statistical methods for elucidating transcriptome isoform complexity and post-transcriptional RNA regulatory networks using massive RNA-seq datasets.
