RNA Sequencing also called RNA-seq is a method that utilizes the capabilities of¬†next-generation sequencing¬†to reveal a picture of¬†RNA¬†presence and amount from a¬†genome¬†at a given moment. This allows for sequencing of the RNA transcripts in a cell, providing to look at alternative gene spliced transcripts, post-transcriptional modifications, gene fusion, and changes in gene expression.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
