Small RNA-Sequencing of PDAC tissues and control samples.
ABSTRACT: FASTQ Sequencing files of 5 healthy pancreas tissues and 6 pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) tissues. Analysis of data is presented in the manuscript: Next generation sequencing reveals novel differentially regulated mRNAs, lncRNAs, miRNAs, sdRNAs and a piRNA in pancreatic cancer in BMC Molecular Cancer.
Previous studies identified microRNAs (miRNAs) and messenger RNAs with significantly different expression between normal pancreas and pancreatic cancer (PDAC) tissues. Due to technological limitations of microarrays and real-time PCR systems these studies focused on a fixed set of targets. Expression of other RNA classes such as long intergenic non-coding RNAs or sno-derived RNAs has rarely been examined in pancreatic cancer. Here, we analysed the coding and non-coding transcriptome of six PDAC ...[more]
Project description:To investigate the different susceptibility to relapse, CRLF2-overexpressing cases with and without P2RY8-CRLF2 fusion were analyzed by next-generation sequencing based gene expression profiling.
Project description:We sequenced the transcriptomes using massive analysis of cDNA ends (MACE) of whole blood samples from 25 healthy volunteers and 47 PDAC patients to identify mRNAs potentially allowing for discrimination between both groups
Project description:MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are non-coding, short, single-stranded RNAs with essential roles in gene regulation in various organisms including higher plants. In contrast to the vast information on miRNAs from many economically important plants, almost nothing has been reported on the identification or analysis of miRNAs from rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis L.), the most important natural rubber-producing crop. To identify miRNAs and their target genes in rubber tree, high throughput sequencing combined with a computational approach was performed. Four small RNA libraries were constructed for deep sequencing from mature and young leaves of two rubber tree clones, PB 260 and PB 217, which provide high and low latex yield, respectively. 237 miRNAs belonging to 37 known miRNA families were identified, and northern hybridization validated miRNA expression and revealed developmental stage-dependent and clone-specific expression for some miRNAs. We took advantage of the newly released rubber tree genome assembly as well as the genomic databases from leafy spurge and cassava, two species related to rubber tree, and predicted 15 novel miRNAs. 4 samples examined: PB260 mature leaves, PB260 young leaves, PB217 mature leaves, and PB217 young leaves.
Project description:To identify novel microRNAs that are associated with drought tolerance in two different cowpea genotypes, we generated small RNA sequences from adult cowpea plants under control and dought stress treatments. Over 79 million raw reads were generated and numerous novel microRNAs are identified, including some associated with drought tolerance.

Project description:We focus our analyses on the description of viral small RNAs (FHVdeltaB2 or FHV) and based on genetic and molecular evidende, classify them and discuss their relevance in antiviral defense. Small RNAs from adult Drosophila flies from different genetic backgrounds and infected with FHV-deltaB2 or FHV were sequenced using the illumina platform.
Project description:MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important post-transcriptional regulators which control growth and development in eukaryotic animals. The cestode Echinococcus granulosus has a complex life-cycle involving different development stages but the mechanisms underpinning this development, including the involvement of miRNAs, remain unknown. Using Illumina deep-sequencing technology, we sequenced at the genome-wide level three small RNA populations from the adult, protoscolex and cyst membrane of E. granulosus. A total of 94 miRNA candidates (coding 100 mature miRNAs and 30 miRNA*s) were predicted by a computational pipeline, of which 25 mature miRNAs and 2 miRNA*s were identified experimentally. Through comparison of expression profiles, we found 48 mature miRNAs and 17 miRNA*s expressed in different patterns in the three life stages examined and 31 of them were validated by real-time PCR. Most of the differentially expressed miRNAs exhibited obvious up-regulated expressions in the adult stage and down-regulation in the hydatid cyst. A total of 3,622 genes were predicted to be targets of 126 mature miRNAs and 50 miRNA*s. Further analysis of the differentially expressed miRNAs and their potential targets indicated that they may be involved in bi-directional development, nutrient metabolism and nervous system development in E. granulosus. This study has, for the first time, provided a comprehensive description of the different expression patterns of miRNAs in the three distinct life cycle stages of E. granulosus. Understanding the regulatory processes involving miRNAs in E. granulosus may help in the exploration of the mechanism of interaction between this parasitic worm and its definitive and intermediate hosts and provide new information to develop new intervention strategies for control of cystic echinococcosis.
