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.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
