Transcriptome Profiling: Progress and Prospects is a resource anyone needing to understand the latest topics, tools and techniques used in transcriptomics, transcriptome characterization, expression analysis of transcripts, transcriptome and gene regulation, transcriptome profiling and human health, medicinal plants transcriptomics, transcriptomics and genetic engineering, transcriptomics in agriculture, and phylotranscriptomics. It will help you assess and interpret a large number of genes, often an entire genome, to obtain a global snapshot of the complete RNA component of a cell at a given time to distinguish between different cell types, different disease states, and different time points during development. Transcriptome analysis has been a key area of biological inquiry for decades. The next-generation sequencing technologies have revolutionized transcriptomics by providing opportunities for multidimensional examinations of cellular transcriptomes in which high-throughput expression data are obtained at a single-base resolution. The transcriptome analysis has evolved from detection of single RNA molecules to large-scale gene expression profiling and genome annotation efforts. Despite the many attractive prospects offered by transcriptome sequencing on next generation platforms, still the development in sequencing technologies and suitable computational tools that can be used to effectively process massive amounts of sequence data continues, prompted to compile the progress till date in transcriptomics.
