RNA Sequencing & Drug Research and Development

The discovery and development of new drugs is a multidisciplinary and systematic effort. High-throughput sequencing technologies have greatly facilitated the discovery of biomarkers and drug targets in many diseases. RNA sequencing-based transcriptome studies can demonstrate the function and structure of genes at a holistic level and reveal the molecular mechanisms of disease-specific biological processes, as well as investigate the spatiotemporal gene expression in specific tissues or cells. High-throughput RNA sequencing, with its high throughput, high resolution, high sensitivity and low cost, is increasingly used for drug screening and drug mechanism studies.

Accelerate Research and Practice in Drug Research & Development

RNA-Seq can be used to identify gene structure and function at a transcriptome level. it is a powerful tool for detecting differentially expressed alleles of transcripts in specific biological processes and can reveal novel molecular mechanisms of diseases. RNA-Seq can also identify key genes and pathways associated with disease, leading to the discovery of potential therapeutic targets and aiding in finding potential drugs. RNA-seq can also be used to detect drug-induced changes in genome-wide gene expression as well as identify genes associated with drug resistance (such as in chemotherapy). Compare with conventional RNA-Seq, scRNA-seq has higher accuracy and efficiency, and the analysis of gene expression patterns at the single-cell level tends to provide more information for drug and biomarker discovery. Therefore scRNA-seq is becoming a highly valuable tool for drug research and development.
