Review of RNA-seq normalisation methods

With recent advances in NGS technologies, RNA-seq is now the preferred way to measure gene expression and perform differential gene expression analysis. However, the presence of technical variability can lead to a wrong conclusion as shown by the Sequencing Quality Control (SEQC) project, which highlighted the fact that RNA-seq does not accurately measure absolute expression and additionally demonstrated the presence of gene-specific bias. This report will demonstrate the presence of technical bias in several normal tissue RNA-seq experiments and investigate the ability of different normalization methods to address this bias.

How pharmas can extract greater value from large-scale population studies

The cost and complexity of organising genomics research data are a challenge shared by larger global pharma and growing biotech alike. Dr Misha Kapushesky, CEO of Cambridge-based Genestack, believes that the availability of large scale population studies will intensify this pinch-point. At the upcoming Oxford Global Pharmaceutical IT conference he will be using real world case-studies to describe how effective data management can empower discovery.

How pharmas can extract greater value from large-scale population studies

As publically funded national population studies begin to produce results, there are increasing opportunities to put private data into a wider context and to mine the multi-omics data for new insights. Dr Misha Kapushesky CEO, Genestack is to discuss the challenges in a presentation at the Oxford Global Pharmaceutical IT Congress on 27-28 September 2017.
