Minshall, N., Chernukhin, I., Carroll, J., & Git, A. (2021). ncRNAseq: simple modifications to RNA-seq library preparation allow recovery and analysis of mid-sized non-coding RNAs.. Biotechniques, 0 (0) https://doi.org/10.2144/btn-2021-0035
Despite their abundance, mid-sized RNAs (30-300 nt) have not been extensively studied by high-throughput sequencing, mostly due to selective loss in library preparation. The authors propose simple and inexpensive modifications to the Illumina TruSeq protocol (ncRNAseq), allowing the capture and sequencing of mid-sized non-coding RNAs without detriment to the coverage of coding mRNAs. This protocol is coupled with a two-step alignment: a pre-alignment to a curated non-coding genome, passing only the non-mapping reads to a standard genomic alignment. ncRNAseq correctly assigns the highest read-numbers to established abundant non-coding RNAs and correctly identifies cytosolic and nuclear enrichment of known non-coding RNAs in two cell lines.

The current recommendation prototype on the Apollo Repository will be turned off on 03 February 2023. Although the pilot has been fruitful for both parties, the service provider IKVA is focusing on horizon scanning products and so the recommender service can no longer be supported. We recognise the importance of recommender services in supporting research discovery and are evaluating offerings from other service providers.
